The Sins in the Heart (Ballad)
Once I looked upon my love
With sorrow in my eyes
The beast had come and claimed me
As his devil bride
The emotions that swirled through my head
The possession that the beast took
Left me cold hearted, vulnerable
Until the day he died
I never knew when it would happen
Joining the souls that screeched for plight
I never knew what was wrong with me
What curse I had,
But when he passed everything hit me
Right through my damned soul
For, I had never known what would occur
If he had still lived
Would I have still been cold hearted,
Would I have still been filled with sin?
Was it the beast?
Was it the karma?
Was it the devil inside of me?
Or was it just.. me?
Twenty years after his passing,
I stood still in the temple of Death
Looking for his soul
But when I called out to it,
The horrible screeching noise made me shrink back
As I looked at the soul, my worst nightmare came true
The devil, the beast, the disgusting vile creature inside of me
It had damned his soul also
Because of my love for him
Shoes and Life (Free Verse)
Long skinny, laces
Which looked like a stringy beans feet
Or as flat as a pancake
These laces wouldn't go inside my shoe
The holes were to small
Skinny things don't go into skinny holes
Flat things don't go into narrow holes
Nothing goes into those holes,
Those holes in that shoe
Because that shoe has lost all its wealth, fortune and respect
Long live that shoe.
