Maybe I see demons

Where only there are shadows

Then again maybe

I only see you

Haunting my dreams

Waking my sleep

Trying desperately to run, as you curse me

 

And I lay down

Heaviness weighing me down

Fighting to hold myself back

Fighting to remember and at once to forget

Find me in this bottle

As I lay down

 

Maybe I see letters in the sky

Where you once used to write, evaporated

Maybe I see claw marks where you eviscerated (me)

Then again maybe I’ll slam the door and never see you again

Bruising my knees

Haunting my sleep

Fighting the screaming I hear in my dreams

As I lay down

 

Maybe I see sunlight

Maybe there’s only anger

Maybe past the blindness

I find hope lifting

As I lay down
