Demons dance

Around the fire of the mind
With the drumming beat of thought
Come entities out of the dark
To dance around the burning light

Seething and singing with delight
They covet the torment ensuing
Crying out, "Burn! Burn! Burn!"
This is always the love of hell

Watch them gyrate in the ash
The distortion of the psyche
Constricting until implosion
Brains spewing on the ground

The morning brings illumination
And lullabies are turning to lament
Mayhem found a home
And death became a friend
