The devil

When I see the devil
The scorn of life
The beast of punish
Pierce of the knife

I hear nothing
But punished all the more
I can’t understand
What demons I bore

Why I hurt
Why the shame
I am so alone
And feel this blame

I share with no one
the real pain of the sword
so they will not cut
my entangled cord

Please tell me what to do
Why I cry
All parts of me
And one wants to die

I Stand alone
in the cloud
with storms so fierce
screaming out loud

who have I become
how do I pray
with the demons
that won't go away

Over and over
with the same mistakes
but I will try again
Try to do what it takes
