the devil

had a message
from the devil
waiting
for me to read
yes a message
from the devil
sent to me

another message
from the devil
written
for me
how the devil
tries to plant
her wicked seed

i thought
this devil
was far behind
me
yet there she sat
waiting to speak
to me

i hadn’t
ignored the devil
just plain forgot
but the devil
took my silence
as a personal
affront

what do you expect
when you cast
a heavy shadow
do you jump
to answer
when the devil
speaks your name

had a message
from the devil
waiting there for me
said
it was important
she needs to talk
to me

but i feel
we said all
we need to say
my apologies
to the devil
but i am not here
today
