The soul eater


Notice of absence from Jooles
I disappear for months on end......just my life but I always come back!

There it is I see it out the corner of my eye 

Lurking in the shadows watching me as I go by 

I feel it's stare upon my neck a chill goes down my spine 

Out of focus a strange black blur. . . . You can't have this soul its mine

A monster or a demon a spirit or the devil 

Not human and not from Earth but some other hellish level 

I know it's always wanting a soul as black as mine 

The ultimate of prizes to add to his overflowing gold mine 

It's addicted to the evil that seeps from every pore 

It lives for it reliant like money to a whore

It will wait patiently for me always until my final breath 

It's the only way it will get my soul. . . . .  Upon my day of death 

I don't regret my evil or the bad things that I've done 

It's part of being human and a lot of it was fun 

I'm scared of where I'm going and what this monster means 

It won't be full of sunshine and grass that's oh so green 

I'm sure it will be violent and fit for one so black 

But I cannot think of this and allow it to hold me back 

There's evil things a doing and places I should be 

The devil I'll ignore there's no way he's worse than me

  • Comment from author about the poem: I had no idea where I was going with this poem other than a monster that followed me and was always just out of my focus. I'm not religious although parts of it could relate to Heaven and Hell. Sometimes I just write because of an idea....this poem was one of them
