Confrontation

My thoughts started twisting
I couldn't think straight
I soon started wishing
I wasn't full of hate

There's a demon in me
One I can't escape
I didn't want it to be
For now I am full of hate

It twists all my thoughts
And alters my mind
It calls all the shots
And doesn't seem to mind

I try to confront him
But he always eludes me
His morals are thin
But his hatred is deep

I then decided I've had enough
I layed in bed and I tried
To kill this demon but he is tough
For he was determined not to die

He threw his tricks at me
But I saw right through them
He realized this and ran deep
Into a trap I laid for him

I had this demon trapped
And he knew that I did
Then he smiled and tapped
Upon the glass that I hid

It all came crashing down
My whole thought out plan
I saw him start to frown
And then I was in his land

He finally dared to confront me
The one he sought to destroy
I knew at once he wanted it to be
His final grand reward

I fell to my knees
And held my head in pain
He started to tease
Staring at me in disdain

I finally saw him for what he really was
I knew it couldn't be
I started to scream in horror because
The demon turned out to be me

I saw all the lies and false hopes
My determination was utterly shattered
I knew I wouldn't be able to cope
For my beleif in myself was battered

Then I realized the facts
The way to stop the pain
The demon froze in his tracks
As I looked at him in disdain

I took three confident steps
Until I was right in front of him
The demon started to fret
For his lies were killed by foreign love

I then embraced this creature
For this demon was no longer thriving
I had finally learned to cope
For now my faith was no longer dying

I had help in fighting this demon
From two beautiful girls
But I'm afraid the price wasn't even
For now one hates me still

I will now try to get her back
We were once good friends
For I guess this demon had a secret attack
It seems that he has gotten his revenge
