Half remembered memories

And an altered reality

Like snowy interference;

 

Partially eaten VCR tapes

 

Stuck on replay:

 

Stop, fast forward, rewind.

 

Pause.

 

Okay...

 

I had a friend:

 

Homeless sally;

 

She’d sit down by the bay

 

Singing songs to people all day.

 

Her voice was a music box;

 

Crank, wind, play.

 

The music box sounded terrifying that night

 

Because Sally screamed.

 

The pitch was piercing.

 

A man shoots, collects and then flees.

 

Just like that,

 

No more Sally.

 

There is an ocean of innocent blood

 

That the wicked have shed

 

And legend says

 

The wicked shall drown and die in it.

 

Blood tends to be shed at night;

 

The moonlight a spotlight for demons

 

To perform their nightly show:

 

Kill, steal, and destroy amongst the shadows.

 

Memories of a sunny day

 

Interrupted by interference;

 

An unfortunate display:

 

Crazy Steve jumped into the waves;

 

His soul taken within a few minutes.

 

I’m convinced of an evil influence;

 

A demon threw him off the edge.

 

It drove him to insanity, then suicide.

 

I guess,

 

The demon hid amidst the interference

 

And ate part of the tape

 

So the world couldn’t comprehend it;

 

 

So the brainwashed people couldn’t see.

 

No flaws that might frighten them

 

Inside their snowy day dreams.

 

The world can’t see the spiritual;

 

Can’t see past the image

 

Or bother to care

 

To hear through the dimension of interference

 

That tickles their ears.

 

They say, “Steve was just a sad boy.”

 

But Steve was my brother

 

And I would know

 

That Steve wasn’t Steve

 

When he drowned.

 

He was oppressed

 

By something beyond comprehension.

 

Still people laugh and say,

 

“There is no such thing as demons!”

 

My conscience knows of the invisible evil.

 

Despite the chewed up tapes,

 

I know it’s incredibly real.

 

As there is light,

 

There is also darkness.

 

It’s not so hard to believe;

 

I’ve seen the sun and the moon.

 

I’ve seen the shadows that creep

 

And try to linger in between.

 

At night before I go to sleep,

 

I remember:

 

The devil took Steve;

 

Along with the rest of the world it seems.

 

But I’m determined

 

To rise above the flat line;

 

I’ll breathe.

 

If not for me,

 

At least

 

For people like Sally and Steve.
