Demons Within

In darkness gazing at the light    
homing in on who I really am,   
deep in the shadow a reflection   
of the lonely man I have become;

in the void again discovering     
images not worth remembering,     
under its veil emerging demons    
over whose power I had not won;   

finding no peace vainly pretending  
that all is well with this life I'm in,  
laughing it seems yet really crying,  
pain surely coursing inside the brain.

    I am familiar with that void. Sadly, I think we all pretend just a little bit. Smiling on the outside, crying inside. A very honest write Wilfredo. I know you are fine and this is just imagination, but you made me believe it was true with your amazing writing abilities. Demons Within, doesn't everyone have one really? I know what you're thinking, that mine is goat cheese. : ) Love, Shar
