Dialogue with the Devil

Updated on April 6, 2016

There is a voice in my head, it takes many forms

Sometimes it sounds like an old friend, estranged, long gone.

Sometimes it's an enemy bitter with scorn.

But it's not really them. It's all my imagination.

It's really you, the Vile One, with raging.

A liar from the beginning, you torment and deceive.

God offers me peace. You will only to bereave.

Oh it's not really their voices- I know it's yours!

So why do I always argue back and try to regain,

a ground so long lost that I feel hopeless, and I am forced to go round again.

The voice of a critical once foe, now restored to me,

But to hear our dialogue in my mind you wouldn't know.

How can you use the same old bruise to break my heart again,

and steal my hope? How shrewd!

It's not his voice. It's not hers- It's all you!

How long have you kept me busy with this illusion?

So distracted and driven by confusion.

The voice of scorn is not hers- it's not his!

It's yours as always, the Evil One.

It's all yours.

      gracefaith (tonight the enemy is attempting to crash my computer as I attempt to comment) So, here I go again. This is just superb writing here!!! Yes, the enemy attempts to whisper those false imaginations into our ears and eventually into our minds, as the mind is the main battlefield of satan. Stand firm, as you have been dipped in the blood. Your Sister in Christ, Faith Reaper

      Fiona, as always a job well done!

      The Good Book tells us to resist Satan and he will flee from us...come closer to God and He will come nearer to us.

      Please continue to be the faithful, fragrant, and beautiful flower that you are; you must bring joy to God's heart and a smile to His Holy face!

      Peace be with you, precious one - C.J. Sledgehammer

      Amen! Our battle is not against flesh and blood. A great reminder for me today. We would all do well to consider the source of all offense.
