Inner Conflict


demons howl and sprint

bloodbath of pride, enthroned is the shame

sickened to stomach you ride the wolf

of the moon and its yearnings


swing the sword and charge

murder the distaste of headache

cradled between the palms is battled crown

eyes twitch and roll in anguish


be awake if you need to be

heart is clasped in claws of shame concealed

clutch hard your chest and spit the blood

spilling blood of prayers, you never chanted


lie still and stare at the roof

enclosed inside the four walls, the battlefield stiffened

heed your hands and sleep if unarmed

breathe and pretend the ignorance


or else arm yourselves

a hooked knife in left is targeted to chest

a sword in right is pointed to head

do or die as them have said

  1. Oh gosh, the force feeding of inner decisions and the blood-letting of hungry demons, makes for an awfully restless night. I’d say drink plenty fiery fluids, followed by regurgitation is definitely recommended.

    • Thank you for reading it. Satisfaction of sharing a word with an intent to convey the self felt emotions can only be met by the receiver who may resonate with it. Your writings had that effect on me…

      Thank you.
