The Devil Just Sold Out

The Devil Just Sold Out short poem

Photo by gwashley

The devil probably sold out
Poor guy cut his own wrist
Watched his blood slowly sprout
Guess he’s just trying to rest

The west is burning hot now
A snake pit filled with a lovely lie
The lord hides in a bottle to lie low
Wishes of mankind lost his eye

The east rises with fallen pride
That lingering wish for new life
As the world singes its fading hide
A lost eternity still struggles to strife

The devil sold out, I say
He lost the test of living
Saw the light of a fading day
Saw the lie he’s been holding.

When I Was Just 16/ode To The Mentally Ill long poem

I remember when I was just 16, So much of my life was yet unseen. I was searching for something to help me discover, What set me apart, made me different from others. And there in my neighborhood, where we

Just Once

Clinging to fragments of memories, I search for love here and there, Walking the shores of eternal hope, But I sink in the sea of despair Just once, let me hear love speaking In a language known to no ear;
