Sam, I am

Sam, I am

A Poem by Nathan1289

A gambling man dances with the devil. The wager is life, the outcome is.......


If I had a secret that I wanted to share with you

Dare you open your mind and let my creativity ensue?


I don’t build bridges with bricks, I hang them with rope

I can generate your fantasies and incubate your hope


Open the pages of my mind, reading the fiery words of my heart

Enter Pandora’s Box, and the epic journey will start!


Follow me down south, through the mirror of liquid glass

You’ll feel the calmness take over and watch the fear pass


What a wonderful feeling, letting your inhibitions go into the night

Now step forward onto the phoenix, as you drift into the light


This journey isn’t everlasting, you know that it comes with a price?

What? Did you think it was free? wouldn't that have been nice


Open your eyes from delusion, and friend you will piece things together

My name is Sam, Satan or The devil, that’s how I'll been known as forever!


OK, so I tricked you, with my words and devilish charm

What were you expecting? I’m frigging Satan dude, my job is sadistic harm!


You look at me with those puppy dog eyes, you realise you've lost all of your family ties

My head tells me to give you a second chance, double or quits is where my desire lies


Do you accept the new twist, on my board game that is your life?

I’ll take that hesitant nod as a yes, and commence this game of strife


Give me the name of a family member and they can take your place

However I will warn you, if you can’t then I win this twisted race


No! You scream, and that’s your final answer which I’ll have to take

Now I own not only your soul, but your families when they next shall wake


He took my hand and promised peace for my sisters and brothers

Now I’ve gambled with the devil and he owns my beloved others


The deal is now done and a fiery rain begins to fall

Burning me down to ash, disintegrating my world and all
