The Wrath of Lucifer's Deadly Sin
by Carol Fowler

A successful suspense/thriller keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. That's why I like stories that seem realistic and leave a hard punch. This story is one of my m..

Kinda like the publicity angle,

Most of us have there been entangled,

Nothing unusual herein or new fangled,

I’d be happier with a good one,

But bad does seem better than none…


Then again, I write for the fun,

I do so better in the dark than in the sun,

Does that mean I have darkness within,

Or maybe it just means I am & forever will be,

Inundated in sin…


Flat on my face I sometimes land,

My looks are now most bland,

Must be the cement, rarely I hit soft sand,

Out as well from my body,

Do guts & blood and fat cells furtherly expand…

No just means you are a vampire....

Good bad or indifferent, write because you can, because you love to, because you have to. :) Excellent, Ed.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Yea you are right to be acknowledged for good or bad I guess is an acknoledgement that we exist and therefore are living...even the pain you feel when you hit the cement would be appreciated by someone who can no longer feel.
