The Under Belly

The Under Belly

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror
"

The Devil...

"




The devil walked in the room

 

First thoughts are to exit calmly

 

A round of sounds complete his entrance artfully

 

Chimes, alarms, a decadent trumpet plays the senses curiously

 

Mysterious it would be to refuse a grave impulse as the hand opens simply

 

The upright begging posture holds methodical to his evil core

 

Releasing a despair so cunning, a predator smiles sincere

 

Tiny little prickles rushing, cautioning, faithful and dear


Become an Elegant dance of tingles paired along my spine in fear  

 

Trust denies the plea and the Ego shines with a craving for sinister

 

Instant addiction, the ever soft whisper in a mere Hello

 

Promise opens with a red licorice smile and a hunters glow

 

A Presence so cunning, massive weight a mere feather drifting to the floor

 

Every peak in my pulse cuts deeper to an undiscovered center

 

Negotiations owns every breath that awards the monster  

 

Desperation, so comfortable with descent and further

 

An Intoxicating reach and a strength that could free the blind

 

Seduction defines and entwines me into the exquisite serpentine

 

Vulgar shaping sweet curving as the wet rocks of a river’s flow

 

Temptation to the hang of a spider's woven row’s of show

 

Sticky webbed surrender I hang above the perfect jagged rocks below

 

powerless to leave or disappear now

 

The Devil walked in the room

What the... How have I missed your writing.. Holy wow-za... Not usually one to copy+paste lines... But...

**An Intoxicating reach and a strength that could free the blind-Seduction defines and entwines me into the exquisite serpentine**

The whole thing is breathtakingly spectacular... Devilish influence of inspiration... Influx of madly-dark-word-choice... The Presence watching me... You are a talented writer...! I learned some new things from you, just now, and hope to continue that trend reading more of your work... So very starkly-darkly-blackly penned...

Thanks for your excellent review Elle.
What an amazing description of the devil, I had goosebumps all over my body when reading. I wouldn't want such a devil to enter my room. Loved those expressions of fear and surrender. Loved your eloquence. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Manasa I enjoyed writing this and I do appreciate your words of praise. God Bless
you've captured the seductive, luring charm of the evil, tempting imposter all too well here. an undesirable, sinister presence related artfully through your well chosen words and imagery. he is a sly one for certain. a roaming beast. all bets off when he shows up on the scene. a sobering reminder of his slick, empty promises ...
