Inner Demons - Poem by Anna Ong
The Gunshot My demons, possessing goat horns trying to devour me i scream and cry, a storm howling outside but you don't seem to hear me i look into your eyes, wondering what went wrong i've been tryin' to find the answer for so long but by the time i remember, their fangs sink into me all went black, nothing can help me to my surprise i'm awoken again but something's not right I see no demons anywhere you're the only thing in my sight. Sinking I'm sinking into the depths again, I feel like the familiar weight upon my chest, it's so damn hard to breathe. I see the darkness again with no light. God, I keep falling back here no matter how hard I try. My demons are no longer clawing at me but wait for my return, they cuddle and purr all around me and makes feel safe. God, why do I fight them or even escape because when everyone leaves me they always stay. The whisper sweet lies and painful truths they hold me so tightly that I can hardly breathe and help me to cry my millions of tears that I've held inside.

It's so hard to escape it, impossible even. For the longest time I had refused help. I had much rather harm myself, to leave scars on my body, than even whisper the word 'help. I've finally obtained something that is worth fighting the depression for, and, I suppose, this is describing that.
