SHADOWS CLOSING IN ON ME
EVIL THINGS ARE ALL I SEE
WICKED LAUGHTER FILLS THE AIR
FIRE BURNING EVERY WHERE
SCREAMING RIPS APART MY BRAIN
LIKE RAZOR-WIRE THROUGH MY VEINS
THEN I SEE THEM IN THE TREES
SEVEN DEMONS THEY WANT ME
I TRY TO RUN BUT FIRE RISES
THERE WILL BE NO COMPROMISES
THEY WANT ONE THING ONE ALONE
BEFORE DAWN COMES THEY'LL HAVE MY SOUL
SULFUR FILLING UP MY LUNGS
THE DEMONS CHEER IT HAS BEGUN
TWO BIG SHADOWS TAKE MY ARMS
I SCREAM FOR HELP BUT NO ONE COMES
FOUR SMALL DEMONS DANCE AROUND
WHILE THE BIG ONE'S DEEP VOICE SOUNDS
HE SNARLS GROWLS AND THEN HE YELLS
"I'LL SEND YOUR TRIFLING SOUL TO HELL"
I CAN'T GET FREE I CAN'T GET FREE
PLEASE YOU MONSTERS LET ME BE
I CRY AND BEG AND SCREAM AND PRAY
PLEASE GOD SAVE ME I'LL OBEY
THEN A BRIGHT LIGHT FILLS THE SKY
THE DEMONS SCREECH AND RUN AND HIDE
I HEAR A LOUD AND MIGHTY VOICE
"LEAVE THIS PLACE OR PAY THE PRICE"
THEN THE DEMONS DISAPPEAR
THEY RUN AWAY AND LEAVE ME HERE
I'LL BE SAFE FOR THE TIME BEING
THOUGH THEY'LL COME AGAIN FOR ME

I had a dream that demons were chasing me through the woods. I was going to write a short story about it but it kind of just turned into a poem.
This is my only poem. I haven't written any more of them because I doubt I can top this one.
