It is about fighting with everything that comes at you in life. (I want to say) Read it and find out.

((* Still in progress. This is just a chunk of it.*))

 

You are walking down the dark road in silence. The only light to guide you is from the crescent moon that is watching you from up above.  Trees on either side lead deep into the forest where the demons live, waiting for their next victim. Waiting to take parts of souls. To take away the light that is inside of everyone. They call at you, trying to seduce you to leave the path, and go to them. You continue on, drowning the demons out with your own thoughts as best you can. Your own demons are already slowing destroying your soul. Little by little. As you continue to walk everything starts to blur together. The demons in the forest mix with the demons in your head. You start to lose yourself. You don’t know what is real and what a dream is. Reality mixes with dreams. What you believe to be real might actually be false.  The thing you wear around your neck you want to take off. You aren’t sure if it belongs there.  You don’t know what you want anymore. Nothing is for sure. What if this isn’t reality, and it’s all just a dream, a nightmare…Its hard living like this, but you don’t know how to make it stop. How to make it all just pause and go away. Everything continues to blur. You have to stop. Close your eyes and try to get everything straight. It doesn’t work. You fight with your demons and what is around you. You drop to your knees as they buckle from under you. You collapse and fight the tears that are trying to escape. You might be alone in reality, but in the dream world you’re never alone. You don’t want to show your weak side to them. The act like they are there to help and want you to believe you are safe enough to open up. They only want to use it against you. You fight and fight to hold it all in. All while the demons in the forest call for you more and more. Louder and louder till it’s almost screams in your ears. The demons in our head want you to listen too. You start to drown inside. Drown in your own pain. Your strength slowly deteriorates. Little by little they tere you to pieces. Taking arts of our soul. You are just about to give in to the pain and weakness when something happens. It all stops. Everything just pauses. N more screaming, not more ripping at your soul. They are all frozen in time. You open your eyes and slowly stand up to see a figure further down the path standing there and watching you.
