You can't keep dancing with the devil and wonder why you're still in hell

The deal is done you’ve sold your soul,
hurled yourself into a pit of hard coal,
whirling like a dervish you’ll fan the flame,
each time he invokes his unholy game.
In a ball gown made of funeral palls 
you’ll dance with the devil each time he calls.

Entranced by rhythmic flute and violin,
you’ll live a perfect life of unfettered sin.
You can lie and cheat your wish is his pleasure,
have anything you want from women to treasure.
you’ll believe it’s right even though it’s wrong
when Satan’s the singer and you’re the song

But soon the glitter will turn to dust,
the gold and silver he promised will turn to rust.
As you twist and writhe he’ll revel as you burn, 
for this is a lesson you’ll never learn.
To the devils tune you dance so well
yet you wonder why you’re still in hell.

    This reminds me of something my husband has said from the pulpit. Sin will take you farther than you wanted to go, keep you longer than you intended to stay and make you pay more than you'd ever thought you pay. Good write!
