... ☻ A Deal With The Devil (Dark) - Poem by Eyan Desir


Foolish ambitions
The greed of gluttons
Dissembles the heart
Desires burn flesh
Summon him from the dark
Come forth minion of evil
Give your gift to him
Fulfill his heart fantasies
At the end of the river
Drink a stream of pain
Devil's gold is sweet
All who come to take
Will be fed with juicy lies
Fool there is no escape
A deal is a deal
You must pay its price

    Repercussions of evil well depicted in the poem. A well articulated piece of poetry that reminds us of Karma - the law of Retributive Justice. A lovely poem insightfully penned with conviction. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report)Reply

    Cool. ' at the end of the river', ' drink a stream of pain', ' fed with juicy lies'
    You use words very wisely. We must of course ultimately pay the price for all deals we make with the devil, for all days we have each become a ' minion of evil'.
    Nice write. Brilliantly impressive.

    To make a deal with the devil and to have your desires fulfilled as you want it is all an illusion. When such is fulfilled, you discover to your chagrin that it is all a disappointment and you will find yourself in a realm of condemnation and damnation.

    Fascinating to read.
