Dirty Eyes

Rating: 4.8
sometimes i feel the devil
and his dirty eyes
watching.
haunting me.
taunting me.
burning me alive...
inviting me to fall
into a comfortable numb.
but in that numb
a hatred dwells, smirking in the shadows.
i shrug him off and
move along
pretend he isn't there.
my inner madness spills into a
thin black ink.
so you can read
what your eyes
would never
see.
while i sit
grinding teeth,
spitting thoughts from my fingers.
hurting and feeling.
living with
myself.

You have got the gut of the poem out and garnished it with the strut of your felt reality. What an intense experience, reading it. Wow.

Wow. I feel you on this one. Temptation is our greatest demon and many times evil things seem the most pleasant. Nice piece
