Come and See for Yourself

Come and See for Yourself

A Story by Sarahfenna

What if common courtesy held nothing for you? What if you forgot your morals? Haven't you ever seen the blackened blameless and wondered? Just wondered?


stand back, there my hands go shaking
breath deep, must justify this risk Im taking
my shadow moves faster than I can
grabbing my ankles and pulling my hands

its just another example of how I sabotage myself
and in the blackest sort of comedy I should probably seek help


The mob is thrashing, angry, a single entity
and in it's hunger it reaches out, saying "come and dance with me"
and fate, with helpless hands tied keep the rhythm, keeps the beat
while below I feel my will give in and the surge sweeps me off my feet


such a clever phrase they say "Dance with the Devil"
You know thats what its like for me
with the false promise eyes and the smooth spoken lies
some come with arms wide open and a dagger in their hand
some live on destruction and supply always meets demand

They're funny, I give them that although I never said they werent
There is, however a path of devastion they lead like an entire city burnt
they aren't a person or a thing but like a bird with broken wings,
they were born to do something natural but just fell flat
theyre not a time theyre not a place althought theyve found a distinctive face
and those who have looked them in the eyes can understand
that there is a little bit of legion inside many a man.
