"For Love is the Devil" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on August 29, 2014

"For Love is the Devil"

For love is the devil

Who sleeps in a bed of lies...?

Kissing the cheek

Wrapped in scrawny red arms


Coated in blood

Sugary sweet with a fine pointy tail

Shimmying against my leg

Providing the heart and soul, so to keep warm

For the devil is love, it comes in many shapes and forms

It can be whatever you like

A hot lil girl or a stab in the back from a prick

For the devil has a sense of humor, he's hilarious, he is sick

He is swell

For the devil was just an angel who fell

Down because of all the brown nosing sycophants tugging on the robe

The decider of man's fate

The devil rather be left to his own devices

For so the devil wears a cape

A cloak of hot red skin

The claws sink, they dig in

The fabric of flesh

On a burning hot bed


I love you so much

      Wow, this one is awesome Eric, love sure could be the Devil at times. Well done. This reminds me a little of the theme of my poem "Midnight Rendezvous- the 32nd psalm" . Please read it when you have time, I'd appreciate your opinion. It is one of my darker musings.
