My eyes burn with the fire of a thousand suns.
My lips are parched and my heart racing.
My demons raked me over the coals again last night.
They left my battered soul in their wake.
Another sleepless night,
spent fighting away the darkness that always looms;
threatening to swallow me up.
Some nights I wonder,
if it’s just easier to give in
and let them take me where they may.
