The Devil's House

The Devil’s House

                         This empty house calls
                         and I sneak in from the cold
                         walking through the empty door.
                         The sun shining through the window
                         welcomes me like a moth to flame.
                         This temptation taunts fate
                         implores me to pass in silence
                         through empty chambers
                         left with no signs of previous life.
                         Compulsion defies caution
                         and leads me downstairs
                         while I fear walls collapsing
                         like a house of cards,
                         but I stand alone and warm
                         swearing to keep secret
                         the forbidden journey I take.

    Funny. It was an abandonded house when I was a kid. A teacher said that the devil was in there, but I didn't see the devil.
