The Eternal Chase

The Devil is at my heels
pushing and pulling
in every wrong direction.
Sometimes, I want to
make it easy for him;
abandon all inhibition
and follow him down
the golden, broken path
to the icy caverns of Hell.
Live this mortal life
in satisfied temptation.
But, the memories of you
your smile, your eyes, your voice,
They swim behind my vision
Clearing away the webs
of self destructive thoughts.

So, I will run faster, harder
further than I’ve ever run before
run ’til the breath of my lungs
is thin and painful and my body

is begging Forgiveness
