I Am A Demon
Author: Holly


All my flaws,
I must adore,
For without them I'd be nothing.

Behind these blue eyes,
Are lumps of coal.
Where my heart should be,
There's just a hole.

Inside me there's a fire,
This flame, it burns.
I'm the one who ruins everything,
The one that never learns.

Temptation is what drives me on,
Keeps me smiling, with my blood red lips.
That always seem to say the wrong words,
Have you ever felt as Demonic as this?

I'm the one you forgot,
And I'm waiting for my time.
Been rotting here for far too long,
It's too late for this heart of mine.

Try being in my head;
Jealousy, paranoia and fear.
Try borrowing my ears;
Words full hate are all I hear.
Try seeing through my eyes;
That ugliness could kill.
Try tasting what I taste;
The bitterness of this pill.

"The Devil made me do it"
I never made anyone do anything.
You've got your own tiny little lives.
I'm just ruining mine.

Hey Holly,

This is so revealing I think...the emotions that you feel and the pain that surrounds you. The sixth stanza in particular. It is very effective, as is the whole poem. You ARE a wonderful writer! Please keep writing and posting as your work is so addictive to read!
