Inferno

Inferno

Naya Jackson

I sold my soul to the devil to keep my heart alive.

His will pushed me forward, My hands bloody and clawing, bruised from fights I can no longer recall. They search for something to hold, to take, to devour the little that is left. My lungs filled with hatred. Heavy and constant the rage poured through me, I struggled to breathe, Yet I enjoyed every second of it. Eyes shine with unshed tears, Remembering empty promises of protection and forgetting the ruin That was caused at the same time

This is my drug of choice. Let the anger consume your entire being This is how I choose to forgive her for leaving me behind take on this sin that will kill me so that she can live another day, I kiss him as a favor for her, The taste giving me a fire, To burn everything that was destroyed, He howls inside me, The only thing about me untamed.

I sold my soul to the devil to keep my heart
alive.
