Possessed by the Pen

Personal (Hope)

These demons live inside me;

they have taken up residence.


My thoughts need an exorcist

to cast them out of me.


I'm controlled by spirits 

conjuring up my emotions.


I begin convulsing as my 

mind takes hold of me.


I'm possessed by the pen;

these words are supernatural.


They spew from my subconscious

and pour onto page violently.


Finally these evil beings

have been evicted from my body.


Now they can no longer harm me

as they turn into poetry.
