Meet the devil at a crossroads

A little box contains my heart,
I bury it amongst the long dead grass,
Hurried movements, this isn’t art
I fell silly, nervous, I feel like an arse.

Legend says, to sell your soul,
Meet the devil at a crossroads.
Make the pledge to be damned in hell,
To have what you want, your soul you must sell.

Silence meets me as the sun sets,
Standing, waiting, under a dry red gum,
Heart pounding, nerves like a child gets,
A night standing in darkness, this should be fun.

Legend says, to sell your soul,
Meet the devil at a crossroads.
Make the pledge to be damned in hell,
To have what you want, your soul you must sell.

Bats flutter on overhead,
Sounds in the undergrowth make me wince,
Sudden voices from behind, courage fled,
“So here you are, it took you ages.”

Legend says, to sell your soul,
Meet the devil at a crossroads.
Make the pledge to be damned in hell,
To have what you want, your soul you must sell.

A bargain agreed to is a bargain made,
Seven years to the day,
To be given my desires that devil woman gave,
I’m sure all regrets will be last my last thoughts made.

Legend says, to sell your soul,
Meet the devil at a crossroads.
Make the pledge to be damned in hell,
To have what you want, your soul you must sell.
