I met the devil down by the sea
This is what he had to say to me

Would you sell your soul to the devil
Would you sell your soul to me
For just one night of passion down by the sea

He held my hand so tightly and gazed into my eyes
And suddenly I felt no fear much to my surprise

His voice was like an angle's and his touch as soft as silk
I knew this moment was immoral but still I felt no guilt

As I slowly succumb to the passion upon the moonlit shore
He left as quickly as he came and was gone forever more

So the devil he took my soul for all eternity
He's got my heart as well and won't give either back to me

So the devil he took my soul and he has it to this day
One day I'll go to the depth of the earth to retrieve my soul
I pray

Childomine and mm thanks for replying to this piece. I do agree it is a very dark poem, I was just sitting around late one night and it just spilled out one line after the other, I don't know exactly where it came from or why I wrote it...tracie

So the devil he took my soul and he has it to this day
One day I'll go to the depth of the earth to retrieve my soul
I pray          
~~~
Wear thick soul shoes and learn to hop
one foot keep off the floor
The upscalators always broke
and the minions guard the door
~
take a number you'll be told
the line up's headed down
A million billion just like you
all bunny hopping round
~
When to the front you finally hop
the Devil won't have your soul
He forgot it back upon the beach
In your passion
he lost control
~~~
