Demon

there’s a demon that haunts your mind;
that makes you fear the very ride
through life;
that brings more strife to men
than disease;
that eases its way into the spaces
of fear;
that erases the freedom
to stray
that makes you fear
your own brain
that makes you insane
that makes you seek comfort
in refrains;
that makes you teach lies
ad infinitum
that makes you seek fear
forever;
that makes you feel right,
when you’re never;
but leaves you stranded,
and unrequited
