Devil's Den (Annette Redmond Walters - Lafayette, LA)

Demons in my head
Sucking at my brain
Twisted dreams of dead
Flushing me with pain
Can't hear what you said
Deafened by the rain

Desperate to free my soul
I thrash against your skin
Sucked into this hole
I've walked into the devil's den
I lay upon his coals
Suffering for my sin

Please release my passion
Before it's smothered out
Love's become a fashion
That's filled my mind with doubt
I won't live off his rations
Somehow I'll find the route
