Demons

Can you tell me what you carry?
There is an uncertainty in your eyes
Let’s walk by the ocean
Sit on a beach log and look at the horizon
Feel sand between our toes
All the battles we have been fighting
I just want to know if I’m still winning
I have seen your anger rising
You don’t understand that is my name
All the misplaced emotions
You give up
And I dig in a little deeper
Combing through the sand looking for polished beads of glass

Hold a golden piece up to the sun
Try not to look at the clouds moving in
There is so much you turn your back on and pretend
It dissolves into the sea
