Inner Demons

This week, I’m being semi-lazy and sharing one of my own poems. Hopefully, once I get back into the bloggy swing of things, I’ll be sharing other poets’ works.

Inner Demons
By Seanna Lyn Wilhelm

If you sneeze,
and nobody blesses it,
what happens?

Does some invisible demon
of your sin
filter out of your nostrils,
not banished
back inside with a simple pair of words.

I wonder
what it does outside. I bet it’s
confused and scared.

Please, God, bless all my sneezes
so that I can
keep my demons safe from the world.
