i just thought this up on the spot, it'd be a cool short story or something though right? depends on how people respond to it...

i have been told a line before
once thought silly, just folklore
but now i know that this is true
even our lives are borrowed
to be taken back day or night
tomorrow is no promise, fight
against the ominous, hovering fate
which threatens our existence
now i knew the tragic story
not god-like, just sad and gory
a drastic premonition
it may sound melodramatic, yes
just some pre-teen nonsense
but i have seen, with my very own eyes
a creature of the dark
satan, lucifer, or the devil
it is evil personified
and He is after me, i know it
yet there's nowhere left to hide
have you seen Him?
curse your eyes
gouge them from their sockets
for He will come for you as well
your nightmare, riding high
in your home, and in your bed
rest your head and you'll be dead
this isn't a joke, so please don't laugh
the fallen angel rises
now the demons come to get me
as i write this, my very life is in danger of being taken back
forcibly, and mercilessly
please, help me
before the cold fingers of death
wrap themselves around my heart
and squeeze

ahaha radical demi
nice to know you were so excited you even wrote capitals for every word =D

Sounds intense....
I like the "curse your eyes, gouge them from their sockets, for He will come for you as well" part.
You should capitalize Lucifer though.
I love the bold font and stuff.
This kinda reminds me of my novel, "No Safe Haven" just replace Him with It.

yeah i probly should've capitalized it but bleh, this is the texting generation lol
thanks though

no offence, but i think this sounds more sadistic! (if there's such a word, lol)
*jumps into poem and rescues you!*
there, you're still alive. XD

and just being random, after reading NinjaNIGHT's comment, do you like shitake mushroom? 'cause i love to eat that! hmm, so ignore this random babble if she's just making fun of you. lol. :D

P.S...FYI sadistic is definetly a word =)

Good one..again you didn't disapoint...the best part about your writing can not be catagorized into a particular stream..u can call it a story or a poem, you find it creepy or sad...every time you read it you develop a new opinion about it...very few writings are of that standards....keep rolling on..

wow, thats nice to know, thanks.
if i'm lucky i can keep creating original works
lol btw i did have trouble when it came to the type of poem.
'horror' was the best i could think of
