Haunting demons dance in my dreams
laughing and agreeing
while I, in search of the truth,
couldn’t believe what I was seeing
They unlock the door to painful memories
trying to disrupt my peace of mind
then disappear in the midnight hour
leaving a trail of doubt behind
I fear each time I close my eyes
they will continue on their quest
unless I finally confront their threats
and lay the past to rest
