Hell’s demon awakens, eyes turned to gold

Wrinkled skin sags, but he’s not that old

He lies between sheets, alone in the bed

Waiting in silence until, at last, he is dead

The face of pure evil, she’s seen him before

While they were fighting, when they were at war

And now that it’s over, and her side has won

She can see the destruction, see the things that she’s done

No, she isn’t proud, but he’ll soon be dead

The swift-acting plague her side had to send

Demons can’t survive the love of the skies

But, why then, why did this sight make her cry?

She was an angel of God, he was the scourge of the Earth

The scum of the dirt, of no value or worth

A terrible man who’d done terrible things

But why, then, did his death make her heart sting?

There isn’t a place for demons up here

Hell only knows how to torture and fear

But Earth needs to be loved, to be nourished and grow

With the light sent from heaven, an ethereal glow

Yet she sits beside him, and she takes his hand

But he doesn’t hear her, his mind’s far from this land

She looks at his eyes, the sickening whites

The pupils constricted, as if he’s seen the light

And there, while she lingers, his last breath escapes

And Hell’s demon pays for his final mistake

All transgressions forgotten, now he’s just a shell

And now that’s she’s seen him, she is as well
