Mommy the demons in my head,

Just will not let me go to bed.

I've told them their hands are cold as snow,

But mommy why won't they let me go?

They're teasing me now, pointing and laughing,

I can't believe this keeps on happening.

Mommy where are you, I cannot scream.

I cannot move, this doesn't feel like a dream.

I'm really scared that this is goodbye,

Until all the demons start to fly.

I move my fingers and wiggle my toes,

Lick my lips then scrunch up my nose.

Open my mouth and close my eyes,

Then scream until you hear my cries.
