Beneath The Surface Is A Demon

Everyone has a demon or two
They keep locked up
In the basement.

Some unwittingly
Let theirs loose
And the demon,
Freed from its entrapment,
Wreaks terror and
Hideous revenge
Upon people
Who are busy
Keeping their own
Under lock and key.

What is the solution
To this riddle?

Befriend your demon.
Even a demon
Just wants love,
To be seen and cared for,
So they can become
The small creature they
Once were.
Even the demon
Wants to return
To innocence.

They torment us
To get our attention.
