Inner Demons – Original Poem

shower1

The steaming water is beating down my back
Naked and still
As the water trickles down my body, I think in circles
Over and over I see the days of my life
Each mistake a road block creating another path of disaster

Darkness and silence fill the room
Yet I still hear the screaming
From inside my head, the voices come from all directions

Piercing
Water turns to blood circling around the drain

Eyes closed deepening the darkness

A deep breath
The taste of uncertainty down my throat

Tomorrow is another day
Tomorrow is another day

Learn from happiness
Drown the sadness
Destroy the bad

The sun will rise through this dark abyss
It will radiate once again upon this forehead

Naked and wet
Exposing the inner demons

Walk away
Don’t look back

Tomorrow is another day
Tomorrow is another day

A cleansing rebirth
