571 : The Demons

One Single Impression has the prompt 'Demon".

The Demons

We all fight, in separate ways,
The demons in our minds;
Creatures of the dark recesses
That trade in the unkind.

Freud knew,
Our inner knows it too.

Build upon the angst within
And so put fractures on display,
To let the demons in.

  1. drink up!
    drowned the demons
    in our minds!

  2. Hi J.C. ~~ This reminds me of "Drood" by Dan Simmons. Drood was to crafty and to be dreaded if one knew his ways. He implanted little creepy crawly bugs that actually would get into a person's mind.

  3. Well done! Love the last few lines 'stresses....put fractures on display to let the demons in.'

  4. Yes...our demons can become demons all too often.

  5. Loved this - a nice easy read. I love the words you use - trade and fractures. This one is a real gem.

  6. The whirls of our brain are tortured some days by invisible but very nasty "critters."

    Blessings and Bear hugs!
