The Devil...

The Devil…
       … is in the little things -
       smiles across the room,
       flowers stolen from the park,
       butterfly kisses behind the door.

And…
       breakfast in bed,
       bills and holiday plans,
       a single kiss at the door.

And then…
       late nights all alone,
       no calls, no chocolates,
       kisses forgotten and out the door.

The Devil…
       … is in the little things -
       in a scent, a sound, a picture,
       in tiny memory pin pricks,
       in that song on the radio.

The Devil…
The Devil…
The Devil…
       …is a clever thing.
