The Demon with my Face
by: trista groulx

She comes at night to scare me
She always has,
And I fear she always will
But I saw her face today
Deep within the darkness, I saw her face
Her face was my own
She's the person who I deny light
Hoping she mightdisappear
But she's always there
She's the dark side of me
She's a nightmare of mine
She's the person inside
Who makes me hate me
I think you may have seen her
Maybe more then once
She's the part of me you fear
She's the part of me you hate
But I hate and fear her too
I know she's my burden to carry
Not yours to share
Cause you have your own demons
I should have never made you fight her
Or at least I shouldn't have tried
She always comes to me at night
Always, she has, always, she will
But I will try and fight her
I won't ask another to take the battle
Cause that destroys them
And I know she's my burden
I know she's mine alone
I'm sorry I tried to make you fight her
But I promise I'll not ask again
I'll keep her locked inside
Coming only at night
I will fight her all alone
I will fight her on my own
She's my burden and mine alone
I should have never asked you to fight
She comes at night to scare me
She always has,I fear she always will
But now I know she's my burden alone
Mine, and mine alone
She's my demon to slay
This demon with my face
