Love Me Do

***This is not indicative of my feelings now.  Picture is one of mine taken the Summer of 2017 @ Matlock Beach Manitoba.***
Seated upon the broken pier
waves crashing
darkness falling
upon my heart
soul
mind
wrapping me once more
in nightmares
I cannot escape.
I thought that I had beaten
eradicated
destroyed
the demons
weeping
at my feet…..
tangled in my hair…..
yet…..
still they cling
suckling on the blackness
as at a bloated breast
feeding on my pain.
Wan
pale under the moonlight
a ghost upon the night
I can take no more
for my demons?
Commit to me
as no man has done
wrap me in taloned arms
claws easing beneath the skin
bleeding me
of fear
of passion
of desire.
Seated upon a broken pier
waves of blood roil before
I have lost.
Theses demons
shall always have me.
