Let The Devil

I loved the devil once

He took a pleasing shape

Made a path into my soul

To feed, to feed, and breed

His contempt of love

 

I left the devil one day

My shriveled, starved soul

Limped and crawled away

Clutching the shred of love

I’d managed to save

 

The devil still roams

He’s far from me, not near

But I am sickened when I remember

I let the devil in, and loved

loved, loved him to emptiness

 

The devil lives on

In his ever-pleasing shape

He eats the souls of those who care

Beware, beware, he’s out there

Dressed like a good man
