The Devil’s Pawn – Selected Poems 4

The Devil’s Pawn – Selected Poems 4

..the poems here are some of the poems i have in my latest project.

I. THE SICKLE 

He soars high above the towering hill
His claws are stretched aiming for the kill
He is the reaper; his sickle shall find you by and by
You are the prey; yours is the piercing cry.

II. DEVIL’S GRAIL

One step forward, one step nearer to my grail
I pray for strength that I may at last prevail
O that I may again be free of his vengeful will
O that I may be free to roam valley and hill
III. THE WIND AND THE WHIRLWIND

Four little cubs yet to be weaned
Have set traps for the son of the whirlwind
Does the apple fall far from the tree?
Let them wait; I float away, safe and free 

IV. THE DEVIL’S MESSENGER

I fear not; I am but a messenger
Let not my message make you anger
For he that gave me the burden
Lurks in the darkness of the garden
V. HE KNOWS, HE WAITS

The devil knows; he forgets not
The heavy debts of goods bought
He waits now outside your door
Ready to settle the aged score
VI. WIELDING THE DEVIL’S SWORD

I have been the Devil’s sword
Bound to him by debts’ cord
Though my feet run, though I flee
He remaineth yet deep inside me
VII. BOUND TO HIS WILL

Angels and demons, drinking the cup of war
Here I am, his fingers push me to the fore
I am the Devil’s pawn, I wield his flaming sword
Bound to his will by the cords of my word

  1. Honestly…these poems are good but not as good as the last two. Their messages don’t resound as loudly as those ones did…but they’re good.

    In other news…I think you should space out your pasting of these guys. I for one am still enjoying the last batch…I mean if I put up a comment for every time I’ve been on that page I would easily be the highest point man. Seriously.

    Well done.

    1. thank you sire. i appreciate.

  2. The 1st is my favourite. Nice poems…

  3. Ebi like say you like horror film. Nice poems.

    1. i take style like horror film but that one na @raymond food

      1. Hehehehe…..Funny enough, I don’t really watch too many Horror movies, cos most of them are like Pornography; too much detail on the wrong things. Most Horror movies out there are actually things that are designed to gross U out rather than scare U…

        1. totally on point on this one brother

        2. Word. They just annoy the shit out of me.

          Where are horror classics like Zombie. Halloween. Even The Thing was creepy.

      2. the one that annoys me is Chucky and Scary Movie

  4. I always wonder where you get the scary pics, did I say that already?

    OK, at this point, I’ve become used to the style of the poems, and wish you would put them where they’re supposed to be. I suggest you post them, each with an excerpt that will give them more weight.

    1. I ditto U, @Myne…

    2. okay myne i will do that espaecially as @raymond don put mouth. i no wan trouble

  5. Hehehehe, devil people. Where is God’s pawn.
