Placating The Silent Demons

We all have the space the mind simply sealed
Boarded up with nails waiting to be healed
Pain hidden by shock rush into my dreams
Wakened in cold sweat mouthing silent screams

Run away and play
Freak another day
Pop another pill
Fade today and chill

Flashing ashes burn
Trying to return
Breathe in deep then sigh
Lie to your God then cry
