White demon

White Demon
Our hearts have allowed to be destroyed. The destruction from a demon, this 
demon we allowed to flow into our lives and rule us.
When did we choose the demon over our lives, family and pride? A price has been 
paid to live a normal life. One demon has left but yet its will to destroy has stayed 
with the new.

This demon I have named the white demon saved your life and now is killing it as no 
longer do we have control. Our children forgotten, excuses made, it is needed but at 
what cost.

Each day, further destruction, the broken glass over the floor, the clothes pulled out 
of draws and thrown about, furniture moved and the ornaments of our lives tossed 
aside unimportant anymore to find anything little last bit of juice to keep the white 
demon happy.

Quietly I clean up the destruction, a thanks or a sorry sometimes comes, but still the 
head hears a word that enters the heart and comes out the hand, only one word is 
heard not all, this one word allows the darkness of the demon to portray its evil and 
believe the negative.

Love and understanding is there, empathy is there but these are not things the 
demon want, anger, darkness and hate must prevail, no light is allowed.

The tools to allow the curtains to open are there, but how can you show your love 
his tools when the demon tells him the curtains are already open. The demon wants 
only what it wants and forever everything will be the blame.

Full of hope to achieve for the day and by the nightfall the hope has been replace 
and nothing achieved but what the demon wants. I still see my love, inside his heart 
is pure but day by day the mana is being sucked out.
The demon needs to stay and my heart wants to as well, I yearn for the demon to 
move aside to allow my love to be realised and some the curtain allowed to be open.
