The Demon

The demon in my head won't let me sleep.

I sit in silence; I don't even make a peep.

I cry out loud but nobody hears.

I am tormented. I am full of fear.

I close my eyes; I just don't sleep.

I have this demon inside it's way down deep.

I pretend that everything is ok.

I put a fake smile upon my face.

I go through the day living this lie; without asking myself why.

People see me as one person,

but the demon inside me makes me another.

The demon inside me won't let me sleep,

but I know to close my eyes and not make a peep.
