Devil Inside This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

with hide-and-seek eyes
she chokes for a desperate breath

a short gasp through busy lips and tongue
her pulse races to join another

empty mind and starving heart
matter over mind
she chooses the devil's side

drenched in sweat and dripping in impurity
rivers of desolation run crooked through her veins
she finds vindication in her sin

flying
falling
she'd give anything to feel
alive
