Even the devil pleads…

05/11/2019

⠀ ⠀ ⠀ he who’s judged
⠀ ⠀ ⠀ as king of evil
⠀ ⠀ ⠀ speaks the purest of all the truth

for the words that come ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
from the devil’s tongue ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
mirror the vilest of one’s ruse ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

⠀ ⠀ ⠀ he whose penance
⠀ ⠀ ⠀ is to bring down judgement
⠀ ⠀ ⠀ to souls, sullen, in sinful whelm

a slumbering deep ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
in sacred darkness ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
a sinister core to an infernal realm ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

⠀ ⠀ ⠀ his monstrous face
⠀ ⠀ ⠀ gives grimful shape
⠀ ⠀ ⠀ to his grief and hideous sorrow

in dawn-less nights ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
and lucid spite ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
shedding wings and dusting halos ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

⠀ ⠀ ⠀ he seeks salvation
⠀ ⠀ ⠀ and absolution
⠀ ⠀ ⠀ from sins of his foolish arrogance

for his scarlet rage ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
now gone in ages ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
Drowned in shameful ignorance ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

⠀ ⠀ ⠀ in desperation
⠀ ⠀ ⠀ he seeks redemption
⠀ ⠀ ⠀ imposing justice as the devil

will he be forgiven? ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
his sins forgotten? ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
or will darkness pull him back towards Evil? ⠀ ⠀ ⠀

Hi! I'm Rose. I fancy myself a poet sometimes... But really, I'm just a dreamer- a wonder wanderer. Words are my photo albums.
