Demons Of Darkness

Poetic Justice

Shimmering lights down a dark path leading to an abyss of flowers mimics things only pain could show  

Cold hearts with trammeled nerves shout loud the cry of deliverance but get no answer 

And so our story begins....

Sadly she stood on the bridge in silence and fear, For the demons of darkness had brought her here 

She deep down inside knew that the time she spent meant nothing to the people she spent it with knowing that life is a flowing time bomb ready to explode any minute 

With every hurt that came from being rejected another demon was added...but these demons can't be seen, even though they are far from fairytales they live forever inside her; their evil prevails...because they were destructive knocking down the life she knew...hating everything around her and hating herself too 

The realization of her situation and the hopelessness broke her down she did not care but who's to blame as life moves what are we specs in a time universe nothing more than an unfulfilled purpose 

So there she was on the bridge about to end her fight, then she stopped and thought about whether or not she should fight her demons for one more night... 

She jumped pushed by the ways of society letting the demons she once knew haunt another soul....

    By jumping your character concedes her temporary, material problems for what's likely to be eternal damnation and eternal company with the very demons she was trying to escape. For me this is a conflict that is not easily resolved. Your short story would be more valiant, heroic, and compelling if your protagonist dug deep within and slayed her inner demons.
