The Devil

Posted by soulconstance , in Single Poems 23 July 2010 · 65 views


I know what it means to have sympathy for the devil.
I walked beside him, holding his hand.
I kissed his lips, smiled as I looked into his eyes.
I laid next to him night after night,
and held him as he confessed his sins.

Once upon a time, I loved the devil.
I gave to him pieces of me
that I had never given to anyone.
I spoke freely of my desires,
those buried deep inside of me that festered
every-so-often, like a wound
that wished to be tended to.

But when you give your heart to the devil,
He will crush it with his clawed hands
and throw it at your face as you cry.
There's nothing you can say or do,
because the devil is what he is.
And he will eat you alive.

---

It was something that just came to me. So I wrote it.

OH MY GOD! I WAS ONCE MARRIED TO THE DEVIL AND HAD A CHILD WITH HIM! I CAN RELATE.

Trigger Warning

Warning: Some of my poetry and prose may be triggering. I write just about as much about survivor issues as I do about love.
Please keep yourself safe.
