Backdrop

Demons scream
within the mind
at night when all control
has been let go

while emotion
raw and physical
finds release

as all that we had thought
we'd left behind
comes streaming through
the sleeping mind

while ego surrenders
invasion complete
for the demons will no longer sleep

morning comes
and still their screams echo
always a backdrop to the rest

insistent
incessant

they gradually blend
within each thought and action bent
to insanity's search for perfection

until a realization dawns:
as darkness is the other side of light
our demons are the other side of right

to continue existence in mortal form
a new and larger image must be born
that contains all the power of darkness and light
combining the noise with the quiet of night

a balance of movement with stillness will bring
an order to the madness that rings
within the mind that dreams
a union born within

mystical in its creation
magical in animation
when demons and angels alike are transformed
to the life-giving rush being born
