I dated the devil

I dated the devil, satan,  lucifer the father of lies and trust me when I say it wasn't by choice, he blinded my eyes, and he took me by surprise.

He crept into my life at such a vulnerable state, I left my husband, I lost my job, and had way to much on my plate, at this point I had began to self medicate.

Just when I thought I was at the bottom of my rope, I figured there is always that one option to sell dope, at this point I was beginning to lose hope.

I knew that wouldn't be the right thing to do, but I was hurting and nobody knew.

Then out of no where some man appears, and he starts whispering sweet nothings into my ears.

He swept me off my feet, and made my cold heart skip a beat.

He offered me the world on a platter made of platinum, He made my body, mind, and soul feel numb, I should have known better not to be so dumb.


He took this hurt, lonely broken life of mine, and began to show me beyond an amazingly great time, it took me to a place I'd been before, like my life had began to finally rewind.

Now when they say the devil is capable of taking on any form, they weren't lying because the life I had begun to live was way out of the norm.

Now most of the time I'm pretty damn smart I have lived my life with a guarded heart, It's funny cause this fallen angel knew how to get in and become apart, but not only of my broken heart.

                               I DATED THE DEVIL.....

He knew everything I should have seen the signs, but I was hypnotized and consumed by his lies.

He was a very smooth talker, he knew way to much about me to where I thought maybe he's just some crazy ass stalker.

Even then I couldn't end it, there was a fire
In my heart that only he kept lit.

He even convinced me to give up my home, my son and I began to fight so much he left on his own, and all alone, and at this point the only means of our communication was a disconnected phone.

And still with my son gone, and me no place to live, I just could not say goodbye, this father of destruction was there to wipe the tear from my eye.

I was head over heels in love with this monster, who's heart was made of black charcoal, and every time I looked at him his pretty blue eyes would just sparkle.

It's unbelievable the way he made me feel, I thought I was dreaming feelings like this just can't be real, I'm starting to question, OH WAIT,,,,  WHATS REALLY YOUR DEAL?

At times things were very strange, why does he pretend we're just some happy couple home on the range.

I was engulfed by the flames of his fiery touch, and when he wasn't around I yearned for him so much.

How could I be to blind to see, all of the hurt and destruction that surrounded me.

Into the dark pits of hell I was falling and faster then ever, beware to you all, lucifer is quite clever, I used to think,,,,, WHO ? ME ? Ya never.

He told me he loved me and he made me feel wanted, and for the choices I made I'll forever be haunted.

Now here I sit homeless and broke, he left me alone all his promises a joke.

I scream and I cry asking the man upstairs to please tell me why, when you live in the flesh it's easy to be deceived by a lie.
