With my back to the door
I can’t help but fall to the floor
Out of breath, out of time
Out of sight, out of my mind
They’re tempting me; they lead astray
They mark my words; I am their prey
I can’t fight them anymore
So let them in and end this war
Leave me to my demons
Let them have at me
And strip me of my reasons
To ever be happy
I am broken enough
So that they fit in the cracks
I never wanted to be this
But now there’s no turning back
Let them take control
Because without you in my life
This is how a person like myself
Can ever become whole.
They're just demons...
Yes, they're demons and we all have them, but even still life is good!
Dear Ryan, I sang the entire thing and loved it. Love Anita :3
I'm glad you did <3
... *whistle* And here I thought I could write. I love the scheme and I love the subject matter, both seem right up my alley. The flow was a bit weird at parts, but overall I really like this. Might even inspire me to start writing my own stuff again.
Thank you~ Yeah, there were some awkward parts, but I liked how it sounded in my head. And if it does inspire you to write, then that makes me a million times happier~ Again, thank you
reminds me on souleater
This is ... creative! Awesome idea with the whole demon thing! The end part was sad, but I like it! Great poem and-oh god I'm staring to sound all smart and stuff!! Anyways, I loved it, awesome job!!!
Wow.. very beautiful and emotional. Really gives off the feeling that you'll give in if your other half leaves. :/ I do recommend changing 'pray' to 'prey' though, if you're referring to predator and prey. :3
slakhrgks~ Thanks for that. It's late, I'm tired, I made a mistake. Damn it. Thanks again~
Great poem. The personal demons can most certainly have an effect on us.
Yeah. Very interesting effects, sometimes.
Words well spoken friend. Hey, you're okay right? It's just a poem? Just trying to check on you.
Oh, yeah, yeah. I'm perfectly fine This is my typical writing mood/tone. It's very normal, for me at least, to write this way even when I've had a great day. Thank you for your concern, though, it is highly appreciated~
