Demon

Written by: Taylor Jenkins

Sleeping
Alone
No! Not alone
That way it only seems
Even though I am by myself
It feels as if someone is watching me
Or maybe something
Whilst I dream
Invading
Molesting my sleep
Behind these tired eyes
I do see
I do see something watching me
From the dark crevice of my corner
With such a blur
It tip-toes across my ceiling
But no
It is not heard
Oh it is stealthy
Oh it is wise
And oh how it is sinister when it curls up where I lie
And it is so hot!
So on fire I might scream! 
I thrash out of bed and realize
It was only a dream
Only a dream, I notice
Only a dream, I say
But is my ignorance alone enough to keep this demon at bay?
