Old Demons Laughing

Images flash in my mind
Memories play back
Like an invasive parasite
Forcing the reliving
Of moments best forgotten
Old demons are laughing at me

When love fades away
And the darkness prevails
All gates are open
For the hateful spawn to spew forth
In my darkest hours
I shall rise or shall fall
Will I fight or will I succumb to this pain

I take a deep breath
And plunge into anxiety
Forcing myself down
This decrepit path
A fork in the road
One half of what’s left of my soul
Is fighting
And wants its share of blood

When love fades away
And the darkness prevails
The hateful spawn spews forth
In my darkest hours
Will I rise or will I fall
These demons, they’re tearing me apart

AND I REMEMBER AGED WOUNDS
FROM BEFORE YOU CUT ME DOWN
OLD DEMONS ARE LAUGHING
AND ANGELS ARE FLYING AWAY
A PULSE OF THIS MANIACAL CREATURE
I HID AWAY
IT’S TEARING ITSELF OUT OF ME, BEGGING FOR PANDEMONIUM
AND THE WALLS OF MY INNER FORTRESS PUSH BACK

BECAUSE I SOMEHOW STILL CARE

The gates are closing
The hateful spawn opposing
They shall never take me again
That darkest corner
Of my once pure, white soul
It fights on
But I cannot allow them to
PREVAIL
Fight on, my spirit!
Endure the pain so familiar
Close up these wounds
Before I bleed out
Seeping a darkness that you cannot fathom
A hatred so evil, it must never escape
Somehow, I still care and I must hold fast to hope

For the demons I slay
Will always return
I cannot run and fight at once
If I don’t face them down

I must be the steadfast spirit
And silence their wicked laughter

Forever
