The Devil's Depth

The Devil's Depth

A Poem by paari

This is a poem about those inner feelings to give up or take a wrong path when faced with adversities. I describe this inner voice as a Devil. Behold! Its about fighting devil within.


The Devil’s Depth

A box without hinges, key or lid
yet gloomy treasure inside is hid.

Unseen, Unheard
It lurks within.
Chained now, when unleashed
Does a sin with a grin.

Its wrath none can escape
It gives life, a death shape.
A veil of mystery it drapes
an aura of anguish surrounds its cape.

It has the strength
that cannot be bought.
Its eyes have wraith
that cannot be fought.

It lies in wait
for some suitable bait.
It decides your fate
destroying, who create.

It is a recluse
never set free and loose.
Or is it a knight?
knowing how to fight.

Heartless yet alive,
It is ready to dive.
Deeper it goes
and gets to the lows.

Lonely it sails,
Behind all, yet unseen it tails.
Lonely it flies
in the sky of lies.


In the heart of men, 

terror it brings.
No one ever found its den
every temple it dings.

It is distraught
often never caught.
It is a bane
in the minds of sane.

It takes all blame
Intense is its destructive flame

Impossible to tame.
Punish, punish! The angels claim.

Alone it dwells
in the deepest of wells.
Alone it mourns
where light cannot be shone.

Its doomed for life
It can neither live or die.
It didn’t even say goodbye
cause’ its heart is full of strife.

O! What is this thing?
Not to be found on Bing.
Did I not hear someone sing?

Yes, it is there to again dare
God!  Who knows where?
