Darkness Demons

Every now and then I have a night
when I get lost in the darkness
sleep eludes me

I try getting up and pacing
but it doesn’t work
so I surf on my Ipad,
listen to music on spotify

sometimes it is too dark to sleep
strange…
so I turn on a night light
too bright…

my darkness demons
are playing with me now
I can hear them laughing

the last thing they hear
is the blast of the shotgun
all is quiet now
and I fall asleep
