Painting, a Lullaby for Demons

Painting the demons asleep;

leaving them in the dark.

Painting the demons to sleep;

keeping them from the light

hoping they fade and wither away

into nothing. They belong to the shadows.

Painting a lullaby for demons;

wrestling with dreams. Taming

even the most ravenous and ferocious;

if only, I could. Wishing for strength

to send them to eternal rest with one final

slashing blow of the valiant sword.

Praying I don’t have a demon thumb

for growing new ones.
