The Devils Angel

June 14, 2010
Faces dance around me.
Voices lift in song
Amidst the smiles and gaity
Is a sense that something's wrong.

I feel his breath upon me
Shudder at the touch of him,
His white-gloved hand though empty,
Boast the crimson stains of sin.

The voice of the devil's angel
Whispers deep, in melodic tones,
Sensual and alluring, enticing as it soothes.
His eyes, so penetrating,
I'm lost in the darkness of lipid pools.
Will Is close to breaking
Am I destined to play the fool?

Dance with the devil's angel
See the smile in his eyes
The evil glint of something
Deeply hidden,
Wrapped in lies.

With charms he doth enchant me,
In a woven spell I'm kept.
Forgetting the faces of innocents
Of stolen blood that he has shed.

Spookiness, temptation, and wickedness. Some of the things I look for in a poem. :) Nice job.

Awesome, fantastic rhythm and rhyme, great word choice, and very dark and creepy.  Wonderful job.

I like how you used such a simple rhyme scheme yet still made the poem so detailed. And the title fits the piece perfectly.

Good job! :)

I'm sensing that you have a bad experience with a male figure. In this I am narrowing it down to a boyfriend or father.  I don't want ot go into details, but it seems as if this has very deep, personal meaning to you..

Now, for the review.  I really liked this. It's very mysterious, kind of creepy and that seems to be my forte. Your'e a really great writer, and this is a really great poem :)

Was kind of sad to see a lack of shakespearean writing in this one, though. :P
