Demon Sleep

Demon Sleep

Sleep is such an evil creature
Living in the dark
Creeping through the shadows
It hunts every human
Wrapping itself around an active mind
Its tendrils draw ideas away
Sapping a person's will to think
Sleep will tell your mind what to see
The ultimate pleasure of a sensual woman
Or a demon tearing your soul to pieces
Sleep has complete control
It will never leave
Every minute makes it stronger
It knows what you desire most
Sleep will only release you in the morning light
It will wait in the light
Watching you
Planning what it will do
When the sun sets and the moon rises
Sleep will return stronger than ever
And again you will be under its control
