A poem I wrote so long ago, I can't remember when. I never seem to have titled it.
and the devil temptation brings near me.
When everything in life is grey
and doesn't want to turn to black & white.
When heaven leaves me stranded
and fate betrays my heart.
When darkness closes in
and love becomes hell
with interests & with wonders
of what better is out there?
When the mind plays tricks & stimulates desire...
And within me lies no grain of power.
When light is missing in my life
and my poor soul turns concrete,
left feeling frigid and still.
What the heart tells me to do
and what my mind so dearly does refute,
How compassion argues with my logic,
so torn between these two.
One more mistake I can not bear
Yet I just lay there
Completely listless & confused?
Completely dazed & amused?
Completely ignorant or wise?
What's it matter? I still can't make sense of all these lies
& the sins keep screeching in my head
like the dead trying to rip out of their grave
Won't someone please tell them to behave!
