The Devil

It blows my mind how creepy he is
He comes to me in the deepest of night when every living soul is already asleep,
I panic with fear,
My heart thumping,
Breath quivering,
Fingers shaking,
He whispers in my ear,
"The devil is near. "

If The Devil Had Blue Eyes

I heard your name today.
It sent shameful chills down my spine.
How can something so full of life feel so cold.

I thought about you a little bit after.
It made me smile.
I could feel each laughing memory on my lips.

I was happy, but it hurt.

I like to only remember the good times,
But I need to remember all the bad to remind myself why.

I never knew a person could make me feel so guilty for their own mistakes,
But you were amazing at it.

I had always been one to stand up for myself until I met you.
Never had I ever felt so small until I took a stand right next to you.

I can see you in my mind.
You branded yourself and then you left me.
Left me to feel the flames all by myself,
Left me to hear all my demons without a defense,
Left me to ponder every action and every mistake.
Maybe it was all my fault.

It wasn't my fault.
Fuck you for making me think so.
Fuck you for manipulating me,
Making my think you were someone you weren't.
I could blame the monsters in my head,
But you were the real monster.

You are the evil that entered me.
You are the drug you encouraged me to take.
You are the hysteria I let myself travel with.

blue,  devil,  eyes.

Who needs a Devil with Mankind around

In the house of waiting
Sheltered from the worst of weather
The worst of direct experience of the worst Mankind can inflict.
Ah! Yes! not forgetting the flaws of myself, which can be the worst of the worst I fain would not wish to experience,
Who needs a devil with Mankind around, the fool of its own making.

devil,  mankind.

Devil's Toy

The Devil durst you out to play,
Now he's certainly,
Here to stay,
So tread thee now, carefully,
And now to God, to He you pray,
"Free my soul, Lord, peacefully. "

devil,  toy.

Shoot the Devil Down

I saw a priest standing on the side of the road,
With a sign that said that the great Lord,
Would spare him a dime or two in exchange for his soul,

If the devil stood in the same spot,
Of that same road, with that very sign,
That said for a dime or two, he'd get your soul...

We'd be whipped into a panic, mass hysteria,
We'd incite a religious riot, and bloody our calloused hands,
We'd take our god and guns and shoot the devil down,
Right where he stood with the same damn sign as beloved Reverend Brown,

There's that man again on the TV, spreading the curse of God,
I wish I didn't have these ears that hear his horrid lies,
If God loves us equally, then why do we fight for him?
If God is so peaceful, then why does he make us fight for him?

We've been whipped into a panic, black mass hysteria,
We've incited a religious riot, and bloodied our calloused hands,
We've taken our gods and guns and shot the devil down,
Right where he stood with the same damn sign as beloved Reverend Brown.

devil,  shoot.

.found the devil in me.

Lips of amaranth
Dripped decadent language
Through weakened teeth
She gave all she had
To get there
& she's forgotten where she
Left her pieces

Fear of fate follows
Her around as
Vines held tightly to
Her wrists,
Waiting to prepare it's most
Nefarious dish
So that she may be
To break loose
& put a pen to her
But seldom does the
Ink flow
For the fear makes its
Bed in the nest
Of all she doesn't want
To lose
Settled in the leaves
Of ivy
A prisoner she remains

Would you declare
Stockholm Syndrome
If you truly

God vs Devil

Sky world
They wanted me to choose
The role of God or Devil
A role of being a god
Full of noise and disturbance
In the form of prayer and curse
Changed to a Devil
An awesome moment
A pin drop silence
Fear of death
Enjoyed a quiet world
An understanding
Its always reverse is best...

devil,  god.

When I was a young man
A heedless headlong consumer of life, was I
Above and beyond the norm or necessity
I wore paths deep and wide
To the pleasure centres of my brain
And I rode my soul like an easy whore
Oh happy daze of hedonism
How sweet life tasted then

If there was drink to drink
We drank it
If there were songs to sing
We sang them
If there were fights to fight
We fought them
We had fast feet and faster wits
If there was hell to raise
We raised it
Excess and adventure in equal parts
How fast, how high we flew back then

And then the magic playground
Became a bleak and dangerous place
Peopled by predators and prey
In an ever changing food chain
And I was only one step away
From the totally oblivious
One brain cell ahead of
The permanent reality challenged
Then friends began casually dying
Barely noticed in the rush to join them
Now the race is on
And I have grown old and slow
