The Devil Below

Heaven didn’t want me
so I walked quietly away
back down to cold earth
where my demons slay.

It might benefit my soul
if I’d learn some control
in this basin now so cold
I forfeit to the devil below.

The wreckage turns pale
this heart of mine fails
in ways I will never tell
of how I found my hell.

The thought destruction
of my aged body to dirt
does no good for me so
my mind on page I insert.
