The Demon Inside
The demon inside of me  Feeds upon my self loathing,  And feasts upon my doubts and insecurities.  You, fuel the demon with your snide remarks.  It grows bigger with every laugh  And every self deprecating joke I share.  The demon inside weakens  With every smile,  And every kind touch.  The battle rages inside my soul.  A magnitude of raw emotions; Seep and escape through my tears.  The facade and charade I march,  Loses every now and again,  When it is just too much to fake.  When alone in the dark,   I let the demon out to play.  He is my best friend,  That knows me better than myself.  The best conversations unfold.  Truer words are never spoken.  The tears fall easily.  The pain is euphoric.  The demon inside loves tearing me apart;  The angel inside cries every time.  She sits, waits, prays and hopes for an end of the demon's wrath.  The angel inside of me shines brilliantly,   With words of love and happiness.  The angel whispers words of encouragement;  Fake it to you make it,  The happiness will become real.  The demon inside tries to become stronger.  The battle rages each day  Morning, noon, and night.  I never know who will win,  My angel or the demon.  Sometimes its fifty-fifty.  The fifty-fifty days are the best.  That's when my true self shines.  The angel and demon constantly fight  But my soul struggles and lives;  To shine brightly through.  I try to help the angel the best I can,  But most days,  The demon does win.  © Veronica Artino
