The Devil’s Love (Poem by Storm Born)

I lost my heart to the devil

He pulled me out of the ashes

That I lay in while I slept—

Gave me flowers that I kept—

And in them hidden lashes

I lost my heart to the devil

Who cleaved me near in two

Reddened eyes with cupid’s arrow

no puedes sobornarme con dinero

And now I’m coming after you.

I lost my heart to the devil

Now I will bury the words he said

The futile promises and the “I love you’s”

As I dangle from this ledge of loneliness tell me whose

Memories I’m slipping on.

Everything is red.
