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. :)

you're very welcome sir :)
Oh my gosh! This is such an awesome poem I had to put it in my library. You reminded me of one of my favorite poems of all time named "Eloa" about an angel who falls in love with the devil like you described in the first verses. You did a great job with this piece of writing, the structure and the rhyming make it sound as smooth as a sad lullaby.

Thank you Alondra :) I write a lot with rhyming... I don't force it but most my work comes out that.. read more
The good thing about poems is that every reader sees something different in it. for me this tells a sad tale of love and betrayal, and the realization of the protagonist of the relationship going sour, using the imagery of demons for all of the bad things happening.

Then again, I could be completely wrong with this hypothesis. No Matter! very thought provoking and very well written. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Well this escalated quickly! what I first read first few lines I thought ok, LOVE,
then so fast it turned to darkness. Not in a creepy way, just as life does you know. I felt every bit of this. It made me feel for you at that moment. A glance inside if you will. Great words, write and flow within. (Give me the strength to live this life) after a line so real. nothing more can be said. love it Aaron :)

We are our own demons sadly, best to not provoke their wrathful side. But they will always be inside of us ready to pounce when we do wrong. I hope you feel better soon bud.

Thank you Khatoon :) Always appreciate your kind words :)
I thought this would be a romantic piece since it started with "You closed your eyes and took my hand
And trusted that happiness wasn’t far ahead."

Very nice turn for the worse. It makes you wonder who you can trust.
