Devil in Disguise

Devil in Disguise

A Poem by AaronFreitas
"

It's been so long... hope you guys like it.

"

I saw you all alone; I could feel your pain

So I tried to help you find your way

You closed your eyes and took my hand

And trusted that happiness wasn’t far ahead

 

For so long we stayed on track

Getting over fears, never looking back

Without ever noticing the simplest change

I saw your smile and could see no more pain

 

Pain has a strange way of going away

But evil is something you can never change

The more I learned the more I pulled away

I didn’t want your demons in my way

 

The damage was done; it was too late

The second I helped you I sealed my fate

Good intentions turned to mistakes

Mistakes that only demons can create

 

You are the evilest of all, devil in disguise

You burned my heart with suicidal cries

I was a fool that you used from the start

And it would be you that ripped life apart

 

Another night I sit alone with my fears

Typing away these words hiding my tears

God give me the strength I need for tonight

Give me the strength to live this life

Reminds me of something I read recently about drowning in good intention. Sometimes best to direct these sort of cases to the professionals. Sure you'll be blessed for your efforts though. Some people are very difficult to help. All that aside, this was a great poem. Story-line, rhyme, rhythm - all perfect. :)

*HUGS* sorry that happened to you. To be there for someone and then to learn that they're using you, stabbing you in the back. Indeed evil isn't something you can fake for too long no matter how many boy-who-cried-wolf tears you shed.

I have never felt this feeling (at least in actual context of my life) of being betrayed by someone you thought you knew so well. The evil comes through in them and you realize you don't know who they are anymore. I felt as if I were Padmé yelling at Anakin on the Mustafar system.

Well, your poetry is just as good as i remembered. as for people who take advantage of your kindness toward them... well better get rid of em before they swallow you whole. give them your little finger today, and they'll tear off your hand tomorrow.

well, when it comes to life...it's all included in the pack...together with the rest...

100 points.

you're welcome :)
Nice rhyming, nicely depicted.....it feels like it all happened with me......Like I was the character in that poem. Sometime short- short things can have a great effect in you life. But rightly said by someone: Don't be sad because it's over but Smile because it happened.

You are right Aaron......this is what Life want from us or maybe we want from Life.
Wow, this is heavy. Loving someone like that, is like trying to save someone from drowning, nothing but dead weight in your arms trying to drag you down with them, leaving searing scratch marks all over your arms. Ouch! cuts deep.
Sometimes it's best to just let go of these toxic types. It's hard when it's someone you love, but sometimes that's all you can do is just walk away. Ah, very touching poem. I could feel the pain. It burns...I like it. Well done.

Aaron, as I read this I could almost imagine sitting in that room while you were tapping this piece onto the keyboard. The way you manage to humanize the tone, drawing the reader in, more intimate. This is incredible writing, young dude. Again, perfect tone! take care...dan

I'm glad you are back to writing with the same open, honest emotion that you always show. Although you use a simple form and language, there is nothing simple about the poem and the feelings you arouse in me as a reader.

On a personal note, sometimes prayers are the only things that get us through the dark period. No matter how evil seems to surround you, keep that candle going. There's a place in you it can never touch.
