This is a previous version of Battle Within Me.



I keep having these images running through my head
As I drift away and try to sleep in bed
All these evil thoughts they make me, oh, so sad
Dreams of killing ones I love. It's the devil in us
To hell with him and his shady ways
Trying too scare us with his evil haze
I tell him to get lost, but he always comes back
I vow that I will never become like that

Chorus:
Get lost, Lucifer!
I won't agree to your offer
Get lost, Lucifer!
You can try, I won't concur
Get lost, Lucifer!
I've had it with your tempting curse
Get lost, Lucifer!
I belong with our creator

Yeah!

You say you'll give me all these things that are worth more than gold
But for what?
The only thing you ask is for my soul
It's an offer you give that cannot be ignored
Guess what?
I've shot you down and when I'm gone I will sore
So now I've thrown you out and have angered you
You continue to try, yet I still refuse
When all else has failed that's when you move to plan two
You fill my head with all these thoughts; Images that aren't true

Chorus

(Screaming Scatter Laugh) Sic!
(Screaming Scatter Laugh) I'll sic!
(Screaming Scatter Laugh) Sic!
(Screaming Scatter Laugh) I'm 666!

*Softly crying in agony* (8 counts) !!!HELP!!! (8 counts)
Oh, God, please SAVE me!
I cannot take this disease
The one that's in us all
The one that makes me fall
The sin is just too much
Feels like I'm all out of luck
So now I'm begging, please
Bring me down to my knees

(Screaming Scatter Laugh) Sic!
(Screaming Scatter Laugh) I'm 666!

What the hell do you want from me Lucifer?
Can't you see that I've had it with your twisted curse?
Every time you just smack me down
Too pick me up for another round
You always manage to give me a quick fix
But every time I use it up I'm back for more of it
So now I say that I'm leaving you
And now you're thinking, "I'll SIC you too!"

Insane!
I'm going insane!
Insane!
I've gone insane!
Insane!
I'm going insane!
Insane!
From the battle within me!
God, please make it stop!
(Screaming Scatter Laugh)background

T'was grace that taught my heart too fear
And grace my fears, relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

This sounded like a song, and some of the lines sounded out of tune or just not complying with the same rythm. However, I always enjoy battles of white and black, good and evil, dark and light. This poem talks about something we ALL encounter, the title is not new but the style is different. Thanks for the review on my poem and thanks for sharing this. If you're interested in such topics, I think you might like: The Madam.
