Ok, this is the second part of a poem I posted in Teen #2, which can be found here: http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum21/HTML/001551.html
  

A battle rages forth within my soul
Endlessly vicious and taking its toll
Demons charge forth with blades of fire
I am defenseless in a situation quite dire

Fortified deep within my keep
Fighting against odds far too steep
I fight for my soul against the hordes
Praying my walls will stop the swords

A battle rages forth within my soul
In my walls they've burrowed a hole
Streaming in, I cannot keep pace
The demons have invaded my base

I kill one after another, only to face more
Why did they start this horrible war?
Now I am overwhelmed, my strength depleted
I run back to my bedchambers, not yet defeated

A battle rages forth within my soul
My soul I tenaciously control
No demons shall take it from me
Even though defeat I do foresee

I shall fight valiantly till the bitter end
Back to hell these demons I shall send
Back to vile pits whence they came
Never my soul shall they lay claim

Very dark but very good....you've come a long way sir! I hope that no matter which way your life goes in the future, you will continue to write as you obviously have talent!

Well, Sam, thank you  

Poet deVine- Thank you, and I will   I love writing poetry, and cannot foresee stopping any time soon. The only thing that keeps me from writing all day long is a lack of inspiration

Mistikman~
So dark, yet so true.  I liked this on very much, as well as the first part.  I wish you luck in the battles against your demons, and I know that in the end you will win, no matter how long it takes...

angel6917- Thanks, and I hope so, they are rather relentless in their campaign to ruin my life. As long as I have the poetry I have a means of fighting back though.
