Now I lay me
down to sleep.
I wait of the demons
to creep,
from out of the closet
and under the bed.
Coming from all the dark corners
inside my head.
Their bloody fangs
and ripping claws,
they lay me open
and expose my flaws.
Far away from the light,
and away from the sun.
Trapped in a place
where there’s nowhere to run.
All through the night,
alone with my fears.
Drowning from the
weight of my tears.
With no one to pray too.
And no soul to take.
I sleep with the demons,
until the time that I wake.

"In the end, it's still best to wait for the one we want rather than settle for what's available. It's still best to wait for the one you love rather than to settle for the one who's around. It's still best to wait for the right person, because life's too short to waste on the wrong one."

wow very different...though I like how you twisted it.

Ernest Hemingway: I hate it. 
Gil: You haven't even read it yet. 
Ernest Hemingway: If it's bad, I'll hate it. If it's good, then I'll be envious and hate it even more. You don't want the opinion of another writer. 

Again, another excellent poem. I some areas it didn't flow very well, but other than that, great job!
