Speak Of The Devil

Speak Of The Devil

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

  

Staring into the soul

Of this winter wizard

Is like a crystal ball

Revealing familiar shadows

Rising in a sea of flames.

 

Soft snowflakes fall

Gentle upon my tongue

Yet taste like acid rain

Making me spit words of hate

And burns reality into my sight.

 

Heaven becomes a four-letter word

When angels dance the macabre,

Doves become creatures of the night

And the pearly gates are closed

For reconstruction and repairs.

 

Speak of the devil

He shatters my dreams

Every time I open my eyes.

Cowboy, you are the rancher of choice!
Well, my choice!
Your words:
""Heaven becomes a four-letter word
When angels dance the macabre,
Doves become creatures of the night
And the pearly gates are closed
For reconstruction and repairs.""

What do I say to compliment talent...?

There are some really good lines here..

Heaven becomes a four-letter word
When angels dance the macabre,
This is a funny stanza: And the pearly gates are closed
For reconstruction and repairs.

Really cool how it's lighthearted, yet dark. I love the diachotomy here. Awesome phrases:

"And the pearly gates are closed
For reconstruction and repairs."

Nice job Cowboy!

Wow... just... wow.

This made me stop and think for one long second. It stupified me! The writing is exquisite and the flow was amazing, even better than any poem with a rhyme or a form. The last paragraph was the puncher, it has been one of the most powerful things I have read, those last three lines.
Well DONE!

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool
