Demons
(Michael Timmins)

I was taught that there are
demons out there
so that’s what I believe.
You take away my demons
you take away my peace.

Broke my leg
at the age of twelve
couldn’t kneel beside the bed.
Learnt the lesson of habit
the prayers I left for dead.

Met him in
a corner booth
the jukebox at his side.
He took away all my quarters
he took me for a ride.

I saw his eyes
when the fires on
I never want that blaze to die.
If you take away the burning embers
you take away the burning sky.

If I could switch it
all around
I’d make you my very first kiss.
I’d take away the mystery
just to see what I missed.

I was taught that there are
demons out there
so that’s what I believe.
