This night I fought again,
the same old demon as for years.
Do not remember the count;
too many passed.

Finally gave in, lay my weapons down.
Opened the heart to let it all in.
Feasting on it’s success, the demon lay to rest.
Fortifications withdrawn I came to succeed,
let the energy flow through, not out;
but up in a loop.

Still swirling through my mind,
the energy left the demon behind.
Begging to be taken in again.
