They Call You Ambition

My Letter To The Devil


I’m more than just a little curious

you restore calm amongst the furious.

***

It is like your hands wave a wand.

One minute there it is then is gone.

***

You are no Christ born carpenter you

want aggrandizement when through.

***

A heaven’s hell is stoked by treason;

here on this plane you feign reason.

***

So I sit in this corner prepared sober

so I might not fall apart as I get older.

***

You pretended you did fully restore

the brink in me where my soul’s poor.

***

You can create it is amazing from you is

a darkness concealed in a blissful kiss.

***

Don’t let your dark halo slip you do bend

your majesty while empty wind you send.

***

It inflates me and makes big my head

when you make my ambition be fed.

***

I never have felt such, I question always

how into my existence you ebb then stay.

***

Mortal shards of broken glass a window

to my soul you grow as a breeze it blows.

***

All illusions bring me near you do appear

as a Saint but the devil you are so clear.

***

For only the devil himself he does contort;

you’re not one to save souls no not the sort.

***

So calamitous is this scene you paint over

it seems you cover over every foul odor.

***

You request to be called your highness;

you watch all die while stoking blindness.
