demons in my mind by Diane Tegarden


Demons

demons in my mind, haunting me
demons in my dreams, sleep eludes me
churning thoughts and fears
taunting me.
are they real or phantoms?

days go by, dragging on…
I lack the sense of adventure
of my past.
I fear the new, the unknown,
the strange that used to inspire me.

Now my days are sterile
safe and slow
and my nights consume me
reminding me
of a past vivacity I can never know.
