POETRY BY SHADES OF EVIL

 

DEVIL IN HALLOWED ROBES

Down a road a man walks
Down through the land of hawks
At his side on the road
A devil in an angels robe
           
The summer passes, the man is doomed
He knows now that he’d been fooled
He looks at it and what he sees
Is not an angel, but a beast
           
But too afraid to be wrong
The hellish union he prolongs
And soon the man is broken
Shown no mercy for all he’d given
           
Still the beast walks the road
Still it hides in the hallowed robes
But this man is not there
Though it thinks, he’s nowhere near
           
Then one day when it comes back
Downs the robe and then attacks
This man will simply back away
He will smile and be on his way.
 

 

CHILD OF THE LIGHT

Oh! Sweet child, child of the light
Thou eyes are truly veiled
For shadows seep across the lands
Still thou sense hath not been hailed

Though thou soul burns so bright
Reaching the heavens and into the night
Though thou love has no end
The vile of man knows no end

For come the darkness of the night
And fade away the shades of light
May come to thee a terrible plight
Beware the demons of the night
