Double Dip The Devil

My life for yours
the Devil said to me
while I stood
confusion writ upon my face
here Satan was
evil doer
meaner then a hornet
offering his life for mine?
What’s the catch?
I narrowed my eyes
waiting
I could see him fidget
his horns
they got a little glassy
abashed he looked
and I knew
there was something he did not want to do.
What is it?
What is what?
Innocence upon the Devil’s face
guile
tis not something I thought to see
but seemed to me
there was something he really wanted to ignore.
Frustration warred with resignation.
I watched each emotion pass
across brutish face
with a dangerously handsome cast.
Look do you really want to die?
Um no, does anyone want to die?
Narrowed eyes;
had I gone too far?
Nope
he still held out hope
that I would oblige
making his life a tad better?
Fine
I snarled
Let me pass
as with a snap
I was hurled upon bone hewn throne
a line
as far as the eye could see
and beyond
of demons big and small
male
female
I knew naught.
I know why now
The Devil played his hand.
He took his death upon the chin
all because this was the year
it was his turn
to play Father Death.
Turns out
one cannot really kill the Devil
and I already have my wish ready
for next year
when I make him pay double.

Dance with the Devil’s Daughter

Tap
Tap
Tap
Do you hear that?
(shrill giggles…..)
Shattered glass
crushed beneath foot
hidden face
no remembrance 
how 
where 
why 
dogged determination
try to recall
poisoned pen 
this will be your downfall.
Tap
Tap
Tap
Whispered word
silted wind
crows
mutters
slight breath
barely heard
(coming for you)
look around
eyes wide
gloom
darkened room
shadows in the corner move.
Tap
Tap
Tap
(he he he he)
Each step
heart beat
pause
listen
eyes darting
limbs trembling 
try to move
power is hers
oh dear
she is a little late in coming.
Blade
silver sliver
snakes between bars
liquid
reaching for…..
Tap
Tap
Tap
(whispered lisp
doubting giggle)
Your soul
twisted 
depraved 
pain you inflicted 
torment 
blood ran in rivers
lapped at your toes
garish laughter
you did not care
pissed away
abused 
you thought 
no one knew.
Tap
Tap
Tap
(she is here)
Bared teeth
rotted gore
slitted tongue
rolls 
upon your lips
thrust 
into your mouth
shriek
howl
battered fears
you left her to die
They promised her you as a prize.
Know this tiny man
(shaking with glee)
every time you beg…..
every time you cry…..
every time she brings you back to life…..
she derives so much pleasure.
Never should have fucked
with the daughter of the Devil.
