Mine Alone

A cold,dark chill...wind and rain and bluster............... Fear overtakes me... Shakes out of control... I fight them with all I can muster.................................... The storm is blowing in the spirits... I catch a glimpse as they dance in the corner of my eyes............. I want to run for my life but I am paralyzed... Fixated on the Gray and Black skies......................... The 
hair stands high on my Arms and on my Neck... The smell of death fills my nose and the shrieking sounds of screams violate the drums in my ears... I just want to be some place else.. but I stand strong and fight back the tears................................ I try again to flee but at every turn they manifest as the face of a Demon trying to capture my soul... why me............................................... They are darker than Black and so is the night... I am blind except for the lightning flash... and then it`s nothing I want to see.................................. They will chase me until I am weak and take what is theirs and that is the day I no longer live....................... Their pursuit will be relentless and they will pick away at my psyche until I have nothing more to give.................................... No one else need worry about these Demons they are mine alone and will haunt me until my very last breath.......................... and then I will live with them in the fire for an eternity... my Demons will own me throughout my life... and forever........ after my death..................
