The Devil Endures

Every night her struggles survive
One fragile heart saddened by an unthinkable specter
Her wish
A faded memory staining the land
Her fears
A nightmare thrust upon the world

An unwanted son
Waiting quietly to pierce the darkness
Surviving to fracture the boundaries of reality
The cloven hooves
The chilling howl
Echoes of time not forgotten

Many search the evergreens calling young Leeds
Sweep into our dreams
Comfort us with your soft whispers
Let our destinies unite
His presence reminds some of perfection
Yet, to others, it is a vision of evil

Every night he struggles with the loneliness
His mind wandering the pathways that will be
Hoping to find the love of a mother lost
Or a life never shared
His torment, in this world we now share
Within the reeds he calls home

Myth or legend
Devil or angel
Forever he will survive
A lone link to days of yore
A dark shadow in the fabric of the whispering pines
Following his golden spiral of life
