Poem: Devil

I can offer you,

What your heart wants,

I can see it plain on your face,

See the way you twitch—

And ride,

Those little impulses,

And they are squirming in you.

It’s obvious.

So very obvious,

To see,

That you have something terrible,

In your heart,

And would—

If not for the world you live in now.

Give in,

And I give,

Too.

Tools and pieces and weapons of mass,

Desire.

They will give you the tools to—

Well,

You already know,

You’ve been dreaming of it for so long.

A whisper of approval,

And maybe that will finally,

Objectively,

Make you see the way that you could be,

And smile all the way down to hell.

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.” 

Let me hear your opinion.
