The Devil’s Mask

April 18, 2008

Blazing in the burrows of my heart
Waiting for a sign you aren’t
The monster you have become
Giving into the desires of Satan
Feasting on innocence all around
What have you become?
The shadow of a taker
The emblem of a snatcher,
Feasting your eyes on your prey
Patronize them to their fall
Feed upon their sorrow and loss
Lick the wounds with your red spoke
Touch what is not yours
Give what they ask not
Who have you become?
Dear brother of not long ago
I recognize your face not,
I see the glimmer of evil
Where is my friend, the joker?
Who I longed to converse
Is he hidden within you?
Has he stepped out of his mask?
Is this what you really are?
Was our friendship a façade?
Wasn’t it pure and true?
I long to know what has become of him
Will you put aside your darkness?
Be a Hermes to a soul, Oh Devil!
Tell him there is love
Tell him there is hope
Look within your broken torn heart
Mend it with the hope of forgiveness
Of those you hurt with Satan on your shoulder!

    Very poetic nevertheless
    Love these lines specifically

    “The shadow of a taker
