The Devil You Say ?

I've heard tell that the devil is real

He walks the earth feeding

on the suffering and despair

The evil he unleashes

tragedy and sickness are

His trademark

I’ve heard ask” have you

seen this evil one?”

Death is his friend and he loves sin

I sit and look across at you

thinking of all that you do

I hate you, I despise you, and I curse your birth

You’ve given me nothing but heartache

if I had the courage to walk out

that door

Begin something new without you

love myself more

not be your doormat and stepping stone

I’ve cried so many tears

enough to fill the Pacific Ocean

My feelings you don’t care about

you've demonstrated your

lack of feelings, with your lack of action

Hurt I guess you can say I am

disillusioned to your sins

Evil reborn in you

Devil walks among us

and he sits across from

ME

A little devil in all of us if we chose it. Its when others recognize it in us we have to worry! Well put, I believe I have seen the devil a night or two in my past... maybe even in my mirror.

I am back because this is one of my favorites here at Hub pages - are you surprised now that you know my writing style - and you have such a fine wit, panache and verve about you - I suppose it takes one to know one!

Thank you for the follow, now let's get down to the Devil in all of us, he does sit across from us and in the mirrors of the hallways of sin. The saying the devil made me do it? The devil went down to Georgia to fiddle for some souls. Devil and God such a contrast and clash. I loved the read, talented writer, nice read. Rated UP...peace
