Daemons

There are demons in my head
that trick me into believing that it’s
just me talking to myself.
and I battle with them all day and all night.
They talk most when I’m sinning and
convince me that what I do is right.

Take another pull… or two or three…
Order more food, it doesn’t matter
you’ll change your habits tomorrow
riiiiiiiiiiight?
Aww fuck it… cheat… who’s going to know
It’s all about the pleasure now
that ton of regret…? you won’t feel it
till you’re older.
Live in the moment. Be selfish
live for yourself.

All the while I’m screaming
SHUT UP
to myself
in my head
but if you looked at me… you’d
never know
that kind of struggle
is happening with
my demons inside
who have become
my partners in crime.

Happy Easter.
