~~The Devil Keeps Calling My Name!~


I shouldíve never done it,

So  easily tantalized

The image now stuck inside my head

Oh God-how will I survive?


I bite my nails and twitch my legs

Shuffle around inside of my seat

I hear taunting that's driving me crazy

"Sheri- Itís okay to cheat!Ē


Yet-I refuse the urge and walk away

More like a hurry to my room

I flip on the tube to distract myself

But itís too hard to keep me tuned


Cause every commercial is a reminder

Of that Devil who calls out my name

Convincing me a smidgen canít hurt

And Iím lured back to my shame


So I am a weak-willed creature

That engaged in just a glance..

Thatís seized by all it's powers..

That never stood a chance!


I surrender to my temptation

Even though I know itís a mistake

But Iím craving to have him in me

Iím off to the fridge for that cake


Oh, how I love DEVILs food cake!
