Loving our demons

The caption says
this should be love,
but sometimes I'm not so sure:
there seems to be
approaching and avoidance
on both sides --
as if this were not a child at all
but rather some homunculus,
a demon, who, having risen from within
swirls through our thoughts
and must be held,
and recognized;
loved, welcomed, and released.
