Demons

 

I wake from slumber

Heart heavy as lead

No greeting just silence

Passing each rousing head.

They glance at my scowl

They frown instead

Not a hello they ask

“Greetings!” Not that I cared.

*

Too occupied with self

To notice their existence

Too occupied with mine

To remain consistent

Too deep in my problems

To note their insistence

Too concerned about me

To notice my resistence

*

Obligation guides society

I wish to have fled

Expectations too high

And I never cared

Why are you like this?

They whispered and said

It’s not about you

I prefer the demons in my head.
