Misplaced Missive #105 – Heathen

You call me heathen,
Your devil, Your demon.
All your lessons
Finally seeped in,
And now you’re wary
Of what you’ve seen.

I want you paranoid,
Afraid of every noise,
Terrified of the dark,
Losing mind and losing heart.
I want everything from you,
That you took from me.
I’ll gladly be your enemy.

If being the devil is what it takes,
Then my soul, my good,
I’ll gladly forsake.
I want revenge. At any cost.
Long overdue payment for
Past sins and innocence lost.

You call me heathen,
Your devil, Your demon.
All your lessons
Finally seeped in,
And now you’re wary
Of what you’ve seen.
