The Devil's Reach

The Devil's Reach The devil he has reached for me and tried to steal my soul he plied me with contentment yet his hearts as black as coal yes he tempted me with riches he bespoke an easy path however I was wary for I sensed the spell he cast he had taken some before me those who slipped into the breach who gave in to his prattle and lived within his reach no doubt I could joined them so weakly in the night but I looked beyond the darkness and saw a brightened light the light it called me strongly still the Devil fast his reach he would not give up easily he clung on like a leech yet I knew within my heart that beyond the brightened light lay what life had meant for me a flame I must ignite so I stood up to the Devil and I spat into his eye the Prince of Darkness loses tis not with him I'll die for somewhere in my lifetime an Angel I'll beseech to let me die within her arms and slip the Devil's reach
