Devil In You

Because you don’t pose what you are not
Or sugarcoat my shortcomings
Because you don’t give in to my antics
Or say things that soothe my ego
I owe to the devil in you.

Because you accomplice in all my lies
And dare me to cross each line
Because you bring out the insane
And urge me to bow down to nobody
I owe to the devil in you.

Stark truth, ever assessing eyes
Pin pointing each fault line
You fling the mirror in my face
And dare me to defy stereotype.

Angels with all their smiles and glory
Can never match your wicked ways
Sinner, with a flawed heart
Much love, to the devil in you.
