Once Upon a time

Not too long ago

Everything was okay

Nothing was wrong

I felt fine

Life seemed promising

Like something that had a point

Something I could believe in

Something with promise

Something that would be fine

But one day

That all changed

Nothing seemed right

Nothing had hope

Nothing was worth my time

Effort seemed futile

I had no interest in anything

And that demon haunts me still

Haunts me wherever I go

Haunts me whatever I do

And it will not leave

I guess that demon follows us all

From time to time

But for now he will only follow me.
