Red Devil

Posted on 21/03/2011


For the moment
My eyelashes waved,
In your pupils, I caught,
Lies brutally enslaved.
Its devil ran, untamed,
Dragging a red cloth
Across a maze inflamed,
Fuelled by unseen wrath.

Engulfing itself in disguise,
Deep in the azure
Of those same eyes,
The devil vanished
Before my lashes shut close
The azure forever blotched

Deception kept adding
Bricks, cementing its wall
Those eyes kept serenading
Never grasping my downfall.
On so many levels
My self worth was fractured
Yet always hovering in the aisles
Of forgiveness, I never closed the door.
