Devil Lurking

And that night my face bathed in the salt of my tears

which lightly gave my eyes a red sensation that put me to sleep,

and only then, as I hoped, the throbbing of my thoughts

lifted my eyelids, and forced me to dwell with my eyes open.

So in that moment as the air became a little more dense,

I looked up and said 'God, you are my savior.'

Forgive me, for I have seen what the devil does to me

and did nothing about it.
