Dear My Demon



I sleep,
Then I wake up,
But to what?

I see nothing but,
Darkness,
And loneliness,

I scream,
But no one hears me,
I'm alone,
Like always.

"Mummy",
"Dauddy",
"Bubba",
"Sissy",
No one answers,

This isn't real,
It's just a nightmare,
Go away,
The depth gets wider and I see nothing but emptiness,
I'm oblivious,

He stands there waiting...
Waiting...
Waiting...
For my hand,
To die along with him.

"Why do you wait",
He just smiles,
"It hurts" I cry.
"I will save you"
The gun with his finger on the Triger is ready,
"I will make the pain go away"
I smile and he shoots.

Is this what happiness feel's like?
Is this what I've been waiting for?
Is this what I was destined for?

Dear My Demons,
I'm here,
I'm alive,
And I'm suffering,
I don't wanna go through this anymore,
Take my life,
End it!

-K.B.
