Placating The Silent Demons

We all have the space the mind simply sealed
Boarded up with nails waiting to be healed
Pain hidden by shock rush into my dreams
Wakened in cold sweat mouthing silent screams

Run away and play
Freak another day
Pop another pill
Fade today and chill

Flashing ashes burn
Trying to return
Breathe in deep then sigh
Lie to your God then cry

Squeeze Gently into the Night

Dam it the pill should and it usually does
End the anxiety and bring on a buzz
Tension and fearing rolled up into one
Soothing the beast with an elephant gun

Now so and how so it doesn’t seem to work
Be careful, cautious, don’t blame or irk
He’ll be pleased to aim if you don’t aim to please
Don’t say freeze or you will trigger the squeeze
