demons

Curious I am
to impure calls of night
to thoughts that grasp my hand
and stray me from the light


They shriek as demons will
crawl forth from satans breast
and dance in ethers stead
my heart be all but blessed


Till morn she brings the light
and shadows reappear
they steal into the shade
my demons disappear

Clifton, I very much enjoyed this one, I had a visit from them last night though they came in the form of self doubt. Troubles they the day suppresses sometimes come to life as the mind relaxes and so comes the rem and the tossing around Love the thoughts and imagery

The thoughts and images that conjure themselves when other thoughts of the day have dissipated. sometimes carrying through the night.. It's so cool that you can take any subject matter and create a scenario that is so relatable.

Well done as always. Oh yes those thought are demons for sure, if we allow them to they will cause us to loose our light. It is in our nature to be curious it is in our character to have self-control. At least that was my interpretation of it. I enjoyed the thought even if it was not.

I thought that the imagery and the words used brought out a feeling and almost timeless element that is seen only through good poetry nice job.
