The Nightly Dance

My demons dance and wander
without restraint
without a tether
to call them back.

I demand their return
and they laugh.
I scream and cry
the laughter increases.

And yet
like the ocean’s roar
their cackles settle me.

Now centered,
I breathe them in
back to the darkness
from whence they came.

When I open my eyes
I find the morning come
and walk the line
with my demons
tucked safely inside.
