A Deal With The Devil

Fires ablaze within my eyes,
A smile concealing all my lies,
Screaming, begging, calling out,
A final, frantic, desperate shout

Scarlet tears drip from each vein
A vehement covet to end this pain
This silver blade, stays by my side
Because all hope inside has died

As each day ends, and darkness draws
The Devil toys with all my flaws
I'm helpless, alone, a worthless mess
A broken child he must address

I'm tempted when he calls my name
A wayout, an escape, an end to shame
To make it feel a lot less real
A deal with the Devil, in blood I must seal

They'll say I died of suicide
But no one knows how much they've lied
It wasn't a rope, a blade or pills
That broke my soul and gave me chills

I died inside so long before
To live each day an endless chore
Pills could not kill what was already dead
A twisted soul, an empty head

In darkness I wait, in silence, alone
Rose-tinted nostalgia, all around me had grown
I beckon the Devil with the key of self-harm
And I open the door for him, with the blood on my arm
