Poem: “The Demons”

Posted by

(Note: I’ve had some intense dreams/fantasies the last few days, that my unconscious mind is trying to work out. This poem came from that place. Apologies in advance for the stark nature of the images)

The Demons

In the black sea

Swimming in the murky bottoms 

I see myself as I am: 

Hideous with 


Sharp teeth exposed 

Ready to swallow 

With eyes that shimmer

Like charcoal 

Blades that stab

My underbelly 

The moment has arrived

Where safety means 


The dark void of an 

empty soul

Of a meaningless existence 

I hate that I am here


The black sun bakes 

My innards spillng out

Intestines spilled out

When will the darkness end

I suppose it never will.
