Oh please release me from my demons of the night
My screams are futile, they never take flight
They claw at my feet, they pull on my hair
When I switch on the light they are no longer there
I lay on my bed and feel them lurking near by
The room goes colder and I yell at them “Why?”
I smell their breath, so rancid and grim
They rip at my flesh but leave no marks on my skin
I need some rest; my body is desperate for sleep
Then when I close my eyes, once again they creep
What do they want of me? What have I done?
Please, I beg you, tell me, am I the only one?
