The Devil lives here


The brightest lights and the deepest nights
the calm seas and the violent storms
in the tears of angels and the laughter of a child
the heart of the beast and the call of the wild
with every thought born from sinner and saint
all driven by the roll of a dice
you believed it once, you'll believe it thrice
control you have as you flip the coin.

Decisions made looking into the stars
making wishes in a hope to meet their points
and as you rise and the gap closes at pace
you fail to see their fall from grace
Your heaven attained right here on earth
in the only way that society knows how
by tearing those around all the way down
to the level a step held far below.

Actions speak but the loudest is silence
The line of time and the time of life
flowing away through the widening void
the hourglass spreads to consume evermore
Praying in the houses of the many gods
Built in the image of the passing tides
looking for ships to set sail to promise
Not knowing this is where the Devil resides.

Probably why no one sees those working hardest because there's just so much darn noise these days

Yep. It is sdefujteky an issue but with all that louse that people ficus on, there is also the opportunity to tune it out and work in peace.

Oh I like it!

This one is so powerful.... Sometimes there is a lot happening in the midst of silence. Some people fear the silence because it would mean for them to sit alone with their thoughts and demons.. Quite scary isn't it?

Few are capable of being good sailors and move to better seas. Most will go.. Where the promises are.

I think the same and I believe this is why people these days always have to have something playing in the background, regardless of their interest in it. Anything to avoid reflection.

The right deflection for any reflection

I'm not enough of a poet to critique, but I like the words and I like the feel.

Very nicely done.

I am not enough of a poet to write poetry, but I do anyway :)

@tarazkp, The houses in the photo don't seem to be Finland. Is it like Venice?

It is in Amsterdam. A picture I took last year.

interesting reality !!!

I am unsure what people visualize when I write poetry, but hopefully it evokes something :)

I can’t see that much chaos in life

Open your eyes!! ;D

nice poetry ;D

棒棒哒的
