Owl Poetry & Prose

Demons Today

Today the demons

They are at bay

On many nights they oft come out to play

Plaguing one’s thoughts, toying with pain

Driving in staves that words cannot say

A song sung here, a solo played there

A tingling of memories, a rushing of grief

Bone crushing, gut wrenching, heart pounding, soul stinging

And then nothing

The night winds whistle, the papers in the bin rustle

Yet there’s light pouring in from the street

Cars tail lights sweeping as they creep

Nights are tough when one is left to one’s devices

When thoughts are worse than one’s vices
