Love is Lonely

The Devils Sin

The Devils Sin
Rate this poem

Eclipsed moon cloaks the pernicious danger

Lingering shadows plunge one’s innocence

Sinful hearts lie in his hands

Capitulate your very soul to him

The sinful ways live within us

Could it be him that provokes us to do wrong?

Is it our doing?

What makes my sins take over who I am?

There’s no escape from his grasp

Resurrected from the dead

He comes to you from dawn till dusk

He deceives you when you sleep

The damned is his to command

He reaps you as his recruits

To see what he sees

A day that we will all rue
