Chasing Demons


Never satisfied with life lived in slow motion

she downshifts and slams on the gas

Waves of euphoria mirror blurred images

as she leaves a trail of dust behind her

An inherent need to outrun her past

she’s a whirlwind flying across dead prairies

capturing lost dreams and false promises

Riding highs, dodging lows

Reckless inclination fuels the chase

Disappointment disintegrates stepping stones

Too many years sacrificed, she lights the match

that burns every bridge, every bridge

Patterns go unbroken as lessons go unlearned

She pulls satisfaction from every mistake

Burdened with broken perceptions that define her

She’s the Queen of Perennial Demise
