discussions with the devil

heart races
voice trembles
hands quake
with emotion
barely contained
restraint
near impossible
precious lives
lie in the balance
while forked tongue flies
and justice stands by
almost paralyzed

waiting for a sign

every conversation
an unholy communion of
MANipulation
and
EGO

where one
reverses realities
shining strobes on
stormy truths
like high priced crystal
under shopping mall lights
creating man-made prisms
and calling them
rainbows

and the other
begs to be
heard overstood valued
holding tight to luminous
images of miracles
burned bright
into corneas dimmed
by human deception

Creator’s covenant
revealed in sets of twos
a Master Builder
constructing
with wood, nails and answered prayer
a space beyond the bridge of struggle
a place where peace abides
