Sonnet To My Demons

 I don't know who or what you are, But I know the pain you put me through I am reminded by my mental scars Coming so close to death because of you  Feelings of deep self-hatred and shame Keep overcoming my will to push through So my addictions remain the same I relapse during the cold winter blue  Reaching the bottom I decide to quit My abuse of adopted prescriptions I used to suppress your tight grip Now ashamed that I turned to addiction  My quest is to hang you upon the noose That was once my necklace for escape
