My blog, where I store those thoughts rattling around my brain

Devil At My Heels
I'm running from my demons now,
Racing thoughts inside my head,
Gasping as I pump these legs,
Burning pain keeps them at bay.

I go until my muscles shake
Limbs quake, threaten to collapse
But still, I force myself along
Because the demons are coming back

I hope my music drowns them out
But wicked whispers worm within
That hissing static sorrow,
Shreds my soul with savage glee.

That is why I cannot rest
Even if my tendons tear
I'll run, I'll walk, I'll limp away
From those voices in my head
