I was told,

Not to play God, so

I went next door to the Devil.

Walking down the street

His hand held my pride,

But I some to spare.

Our shadows tiptoed on house tops.

Mind, rest easy.

The stars came down like rain.

Instead of a romantic seen,

The stars killed the non-believers.

Mind became tangled.


I float under.

Hair licked my cheek.

Everything is soft underwater.

Everything is blue.

Water falls down the face

Of my depression

Into a pool that once

Stood crystal clear and sparkled.


Everything is green.

Legs dangle in the abyss

And he whispers to me:


Last night,

Things were chasing me.

I wasn’t scared.

Between the dream world and a therapist,

This is progress.

I remember,

Showing someone the stars that I know.

The Devil looked at me,

Claimed me a non-believer

One last time,

And the stars rained down on me.
