Black cloud

by Em   Jun 9, 2017

The demons in my head
seem to grip me with glee
as I'm tossing and turning
"wondering why the f..k me?"

they're hauntingly satisfying
chill me right to the core
when I think they've done taunting
they come back for more

they don't seem to mind
if it's day or it's night
because every time they
return filled with delight

they call me these names
like the kids did from school
then I hear them laughing
at me as if I was the fool

they then say "it's your fault
for all the times you got abused"
as if agreeing with my thinking
and the fact my ego's bruised

they tell me I'm an ugly waster
not fit for this wonderful earth
but I'll prove to these bastards
I'm a strong lady with alot of worth.
