At the end of the day, I close my eyes,
The future drops by to say hi and dies;
The past pays me a brief revisit too,
Reminding me how painfully time flies.

The times gone by circle around a pyre,
Dancing till the flames grow ice-cold;
The times yet to come rise, revive it,
And take me where possibilities unfold.

I try to awake from the dream – denied,
I claw from within the casket – in vain;
My vanity succumbs to my predicament,
And existence admits to being mundane.

Past and future return for an encore,
Tango in the ashes, in a state enchanté;
Shackled, I am but a prisoner of sleep,
Whether I’m numb or dead, who’s to say?

It’s all here, buried deep in my mind:
In some hidden nooks and crannies.
There are some things I know not; 
Others, I’d rather you didn’t know.

Coated in a film of the mundane and bland, 
I am much more than what meets your eye.
Incarcerated in my head, reside demons;
They feast over my soul for sustenance.

The demons are jolly good company; 
They talk to me about my raison d’être.
Just like happiness, they keep telling me,
It is nought but a mere wild goose chase.

Every time they struggle to break free, 
I push down a pint of the potion of pain.
Should my demons ever take over me,
I will have to walk away from you.
