Difficult Little Devil

Difficult Little Devil

Difficult little devil aren't you,
Won't stay in your little box,
My mind cannot withstand your tricks,
My body cannot withstand your rocks.
The weight of your words pain me,
I wake up with bruises others can not see,
Avoiding the inevitable is impossible,
I hear you laughing with glee.
Each win for you a loss for me,
Truth and lies jumble together,
No more choices presented,
Lossing you is harder than eating leather.
I just want to move on,
Start a new beginning,
But with you always in my head,
Nothing will ever stay fulfilling.
Saying you crush my soul isn't an exaggeration,
You're always causing a complication,
Making me feel the separation,
Locking you up is my biggest revelation.
I just want to be free of you,
Set aside my past troubles for good,
But I suppose that's not in God's plan,
And I can't think of a reason he should.
After all, I'm deserving of all punishment,
My sins outweigh my virtues,
Feel the burning hand of the devil on my back,
Only he understands what I choose.
The little devil in my head will stay forever,
Maybe it'll grow or maybe shrink,
But one thing I know without a doubt,
No manner of happiness could ever sever our link...
