My World

My World

Why do you want me to leave?
My comfort is the blackness
The demons claw at my feet
My ears echo the screams of a million souls
Fire is my bed at night
Sulfur is the smell of my garden
I never had a choice
My ideas scared you
Nightmares crept into your dreams
The thought of me scared you
Made you question your own reality
You drove me into Hell
Keeping me away from humanity
Keeping your existence safe from me
Saving the souls of your children
I am here watching you
Seeing everything you do
I will bide my time in my paradise
Burning with my thoughts simmering
When the time is right
Your faith shaken by questions and doubts
I will be there to take you by the hand
I will lead you into my world
You will see what the darkness offers
And your screams will join the others
I will just sit back and listen
You are in my world now!
