A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror

the Devil is out tonight

he is everywhere

he drove past me in the darkness

he sits next to me in the light

he looks so ordinary

I know it's the devil

I can read his mind

is man really one or a matter of understanding?
I see it as presenting the darker side of people as devilish. But, even literally also this is as impactful for me. Thank you for sharing an amazing craft.

I was scared reading this. Quite an intriguing and captivating one, sheer kind. I really enjoyed reading this small, sweet yet Erie write. I love that you keep experimenting with genres of your poems. Great poetry. Well done.

Lol, Keiser Soce!!! I love The Usual Suspects!

I enjoyed the minimalism of this writing as it added a bit of vagueness as to the character of the Devil. I love taking the Devil as a sort of metaphorical evil that exists within our world and sometimes even ourselves.

Overall, it's poignant yet elegantly understated in my opinion. Very nice. :)
