One night when I was asleep
My bed started to shake
It started getting so frantic
I was forced to awake

I watched my bed tremble
Shocked I began to scream
It was all so confusing
I believed I was in a dream

Till mum ran up my stairs
Screamed at what she saw
Suddenly my body was picked up
And flung against a wall

My heart started to pound
Till my body was out of control
I felt a darkness draw over me
Like evil was devouring my soul

Scratches appeared on my body
Like fingernails tore at my skin
I felt whatever evil was inside me
Get more powerful from within

My voice became hoarse
Till the words I spoke weren’t mine
And whatever evil had possessed me
It was released from inside

I swore at my mother
Said I’d take her life
And after I’d murdered her
I’d go and commit suicide

I laughed a hollow laugh
My body hit all the walls
Till I lay limp
Eyes wide open on the floor

I stared at my mother
A smile played across my lips
Till my hand reached my throat
And scratched it with my finger tips

I was tied up to my bed
Hands and feet bound
My laughing echoed through the house
It became the only sound

My mother cried beside me
I spat in her face
This demon which controlled me
Made my body into a state

Eventually they called a priest
And he prayed to almighty god
Again someone spoke through me and said
“F*(K that ugly sod!”

But when they thought it was all over
As I came back to myself
I told everyone I was ok
I know longer needed help

But the truth is I lied
It was never really gone
It still remains inside me
Right where it belongs…
