overactive imagination

I need the crowd

My demons are crowd-shy

But I’m all alone

So they are here again

The demon in my dreams

We sleep together at night

The light chases them away

But lately they’ve become bolder

 

Oh the walls of my room

Why have you forsaken me?

The demons have made you their abode

And they stretch their arms towards me

Waiting to possess my feeble mind

 

Thump… thump

My heart dances to their tunes

Ridding me of my breathe

Arrgh… arrgh

My soul wails of its burden

It cries for freedom

Trrrrrr…trrrrrrr

My mind tears apart

Underneath the burden of their irresistible speech

 

And suddenly, at a tap of my sister’s palm

My demons retreat into the walls

She says knowingly

“You have begun again.”

She shakes her head in pity

And arranges her clothes

Mumbling of overactive imaginations

 

How then do I make her understand?

That my imaginations are my reality.
