The Deal

Running in the dark I tripped and fell Copper in the air, all I could smell Fear and terror touched my head Hope I wasn't just left for dead Up ahead was some kind of light Saw some movement prepared to fight Thats when I saw the look in his eye Had to be strong or I knew I would die He said follow me I know the way If you want to live you'll do what I say That's when I saw the horns and the tail I knew right then I could be only in hell I turned and ran as fast as I could My body felt rigid, almost like wood I could feel heat on the back of my neck A blow to my head and I hit the deck As blackness pulled me down in a hole I knew that my life wasn't all that he stole As hideous laughter brought me awake I knew it was over, my soul he would take What do you want was all I could say He said with a smirk," You may want to pray " My mind snapped and I began to squeal The last thing I heard was " Let's make a deal "
