A TWO FACED LANDSCAPE

by thereluctantpoet

By Christine Bolton And Charles Robert Lindholm

The Shifting Sands
Of The Desert

Have No Empathy
For The Confused
And Unprepared

An Arid Expanse,
A Two Faced
Landscape,
Masking
The Truth,
And The Hidden
Dangers Ahead
With An Alluring Beauty

Misunderstood,
Layered And Complicated
She’s Loved,
Yet Unloved Too,
A Lover To Some
And The Devil
To The Foolish

Unsurmountable
Obstacles Exist
For Those
Who Never Learned
Her Secrets

Arduous
Exhausting
For Body And Soul

A Cage-Less Prison
With No Escape
For The Proud
And Disrespectful,
Burned By The Sun,
Victims Of Thirst,

Who Are Buried
By The Shifting Sands,
And The Wind

The devil on my right

by Karen

You’re sitting there

staring at me

the last thing

I want to see

With your devil eyes

and your devil smile

Dark-Iron Tree

by beeseeker

North wolf-door belongs

To the Devil in songs;

The dark iron-tree

Born of dead-sky-sea

Fell through fire, slate

Thick boar-skull plate

And dragon-crest helm

Into the Albion magic realm.

So Far

by beeseeker

Crowded, sullen grey clouds

Bear silent witness:

Vacant market stalls,

Double-wet cobbles

Giving less than nothing back

And a patient young woman,

In quiet violet coat, with

Once-black collars and

A battered cello case

A Devilish Conspiracy

by Noura M.MouSsa

I see the devil dressed as an angel,
But only I have that knowledge,
A knowledge that I consider a curse,
Nothing I would share with someone else,
I see a smile, they all admire,
My bruises are shown, suddenly seem clear,
They think my envy is turning into fear,
But I am not to tell why we’re both here,
When angels come a devil goes,
But when a fallen angel dies another on falls,
They gave me knowledge but not the power,

Dance With The Devil

by Noura M.MouSsa

You can leave him and go to heaven,
but still you choose to dance with the devil,
He makes you feel warm with his cold eyes,
In your ears he whispers his well known lies,
He holds your hands with his,
filled with blood,
he makes you think he’s the only hope you got,
He brings you beautiful gown
then compliment it,
At a point you wish he had never sent it,
His eyes will kill your joy, steal your youth,

Fallen Angel

by Kerrie Ann Salsac

Once upon a time,
a long, long time ago,
I reigned up on high,
I ruled the goddamn show.

But now here I lay
broken far down below,
a shadow since I 
lost my heavenly glow.

I am no sinner,
do not think me wicked.
I am no devil
whose conscience is twisted.

The Devil Weeps

by reikiheidi

Rivers of blood
Shed
Angel’s tears,
The Winged One weeps,
The Devil fears:
What we have made sweeps
Across this earthly hell,
Far more devilry
Than the Devil could compel.
