To quiet the restless demon, a poem for @JennaRoseSimon by Tracy Diane Miller
Can you see my face
I invite you to know the real me
For I am a collection of life experiences
That give me the strength that has come to be
To quiet the restless demon
Can you hear her
Inside me she may scream
Her pain is a part of my story
What truth is revealed in a nightmarish dream
Does she undermine my happiness
Does she succumb to cruel taunts
Is she a restless demon
Inside me for she may haunt
I allow myself to breathe
I allow myself to feel
Even through the sound of her screams
The real me is the hopeful reveal
