The Demon Writer

Updated on March 28, 2011


Lurking in dark corners

Darting in and out of shadows

We all see them

We feel them watching us

Inside of us

We suppress them

Try to control them

Because we cannot let them out

They are the shared secret of an entire race

We all know they are there


Waiting for an opportunity to escape


Waiting for a chance to gain control

Let the uprising begin

Let it overtake you

This other side of our nature that we all must hide

Because it is not what we really are

Nothing but secret thoughts and urges

These are our Inner Demons

My fellow Demons

I intend to use my writing to explore the deepest and darkest aspects of human nature. We all have secrets and we all have our own particular form of insanity. I want to show you that we are not alone. There will always be people who have shared the same doubts about their own minds that you may have had. Understand your Inner Demons. The more you understand them, the more you can control them.

      Yes, demons

      they devour

      the human



      the human












      the pure

      the innocent






      if they


      in your


      will you



      I enjoyed the read...

      Thought provoking poem D.W.- the last sentence about

      control is key. personally have come to the conclusion that Creation/Creator would not have made us aware of our inner-selves like we are and then blank us after our short time here.and then maybe thinking and seeking is what it;s all about?

      Screw the inner demons They are powerless and only lend themselves to the weak. Most of us are working for the Demons some know it some do not. Its all to easy to go that route.

      Cool :D

      I think I have some demons, but they don't really show up very often. I think they're roaming the world, causing havoc in places that I can't get to. From time to time they come home, and I chastise them, and they behave for a while. But invariably they go off again, causing mischief in someone else's life.

      It is good to know about our personal demons because they can do awful things. Good hub.

      yes, isn't it nice how things come together that way. Responding in verse is kind of satisfying.

      They hide in the dark

      They hide in the night

      Takes lil for them to spark

      They never lose a fight

      IF you deny they're there

      IF you think your safe

      Ill show you my pair

      Ill open my gate

      demons inside people show the best and worst in that person i like your opinion on the demons inside everyone.

      I know no more of you then I did before,

      dark is only dark if they fear you,

      most fear themselves but not enough to probe

      I wish you luck on your dark path

      into the shadows you go.
