Badass

Hidden in a midnight eve
Darkest vision did perceive
Heart of glass, onyx black
Devil seeking to get back
Locked me with a crimson gaze
Eyes of his, so fierce ablaze
Twisting all that I did know
Deepest thoughts hidden below
And though I wished to hasten, run
Scatter like a dying sun
I stood my ground against his will
Defied him though I felt quite ill
And turned my thoughts to you, my love
He couldn’t touch me whilst above
And though he threatened, scrambled, raged
His pleas for death, I did evade
To curse him, spiteful, send him back
The Devil failed, badass packed
