My Demon King

MY DEMON KING

I sense you standing near
Your shoulders haunched in supplication.
Your hands do shield your eyes
They do belie your lies.
I look behind in trepidation
I cannot see your face
No trace, no grace
No consolation, motivation.
You do not want to know it seems
And to partake in fragile dreams.
I'm not as strong as you believe
I wear my heart upon my sleeve.
So where are you my demon King
Who tries to clip this spirit's wings?

    Before thou I stand...
    These demon wings shall shelter thee.

    I have read this before and liked it but for some reason my comments hadn't registered. So a quick reminise. Another wonderful piece. I've in particular the lines...

    I'm not as strong as you believe

    So where are you my Demon king
    Who tried to clip this spirits wing

    Vivid imagery and strong emotion I could even see you writing a short story as spin off from this. Milly x
