Night Demons

I can’t sleep.

Night demons scratching at my back once again; Taunting me.

Even when I close my eyes, they don’t get the message that they’re not welcome.

Unwanted, uninvited pests, lurking through my thoughts, flipping through my conscious, reading aloud the crumbled up and tossed out pages of my life.

annunciating each and EVERY single word .

I can feel them digging deeper. My skin breaks, liquified heartbreak, anxiety and pain begins to bleed through.

I try applying pressure but it soaks through. Its everywhere, I can feel it pooling throughout my entirety. I’m drenched, on the brink of panic.

How do I make them go away?

What am I doing to make them stay?
