Devil’s Knot

Caught in a devil’s knot
Betwixt and here between
Something essential that I yet forgot
Something I had seen

Trapped in the devil’s knot
Innocence fled me that night
Thus I have found the cursed spot
Nothing I saw was right

Bound by the devil’s knot
Ropes that no-one can see
Drawn to my appointed slot
Nothing’s so lost as me

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. Oh how I’ve missed your poetry! You need to publish a book with all of the poems you’ve written in it. I would buy it in a heartbeat!
