Fear the Quagmire

He has come again
and I am powerless to keep him away
Yeah I desire to hear his voice
yes I know he only speaks lies
Even though they smell like death, I listen
I and he become as one, cursing the groumd
The same ground that supports my step
the same ground where I slept
That dreaded quagmire that shall bring me down
which holds my foot from solid ground
I listen and the why 
has forever evaded me
So I tell thee now
fear the quagmire meant only to pull you down

    Typos lines 2, 6, 7. But let's ignore those :) - Nice deep poem, overtones of the Devil's temptation in there. enjoyed.
