False Happiness - Poem by Paige DeRogatis

Once masked by a crafty disguise,

I fell victim to the devil’s eyes

As I bought his tainted merchandise

In exchange for my soul

To rid myself of emptiness

I fled to temporary bliss

And gorged myself with Satan’s kiss

But it never made me whole

This case I could not comprehend

For this demon was my only “friend”

Beginning my addictive trend

By spoiling me with pseudo dole

Weary to trek to the unknown

I locked myself beneath his throne

Unwilling to change, scared to atone

Thrill became my only goal

I must step out my comfort zone

Trapped in this lair, I live alone

A depressive hell I quite bemoan

Rotting with tainted joy I stole.
