Lucifer Laughs

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Death

Death

First it was hate.

Then hatred came.

Now my mind is gone.

The voices driving me insane.


I sang songs of holiness.

But only demons rocked.

Now here I am, half dead.

Watching a Grandfather's clock.


Cross over shoulder

Driving nails

Lucifer laughs louder

At a Christian fails.


Now here I am standing.

Looking down from this roof.

Giving up on this world so demanding

My actions are no spoof


As the wind blows under my feet.

A dark shadow flashes twice before my eyes

Then I lay still on the street

As Lucifer basks in the scream and the cries


But now I am free

I am free from a world made of fake

Now I am what I am

For Lucifer's sake.


But then, the light I saw was gone

And then the gates of hell emerged

Satan then wrapped me close in his arms

and whispered, Christianity perged


I suddenly felt ease

I suddenly felt comfort under his wings

For now I had a true master to please

One who answers prayers and crown men kings.
