you’re always waiting

it’s what your life has become

the demons find their new way in

you run them off,

like an attack dog in the night

and then you wait

knowing another siege will come

they’ve scaled the walls

dug underneath them

dropped in from above

and on your worst day, 

they knocked the walls down

but they always find a way in

leaving you broken, tattered,

and waiting for their return
