Unholy Death

In my mind where Satan doth tease,
His presence takes upon me its toll.
He offers my mind’s immortality
If I’ll only negotiate my soul.

Reign with him o’er the Valley of Death,
The Reaper extends to me his hand.
Seems a thrilling temptation, nay, exalted escape
From a life that I cannot stand.

Though nearer glance at digits so grizzly
Sets before me the revelation,
‘Tis naught to be gained by an unholy death
Upon succumbing to the ultimate sin.

    1. Thank you so much! You are so right about “ultimate sin”, there are many interpretations of the term. Given the finality of suicide, that’s my view of it, but I’ve read and enjoyed many other interpretations. I’m a fan of your work. I accept that compliment with pride!
