Sold your soul for material gain
cloaked in darkness cold and gray.

Pain embalms your force fed smile
all dressed up with class and style.

Nightmares bathe you in sleepless mist
add new drugs to your growing list.

Anorectic footsteps mingle with every step
skeletal friendships are all that's left.

Alone in a corner rocking back and forth
one day soon payment will be sought.

Piper wants his pay in blood.
Grim Reaper leads you to the door.
Payment must be paid in full.
Material possession's won't free your soul...

Lesson painfully learned for so many of us. Ever the negotiators. But there's no free lunch...

This is definitely the essence of Gothic. I enjoy a good Gothic work and this is indeed one of those!
Reviewed by Crystal-Rain Love
Excellent work. Kind of similar to the short story I've been working on. They say great minds think alike so I must be good, because you are truly gifted!

How true, Zenith! The one who sells his soul has sold himself.

I would be scared to death when that bill comes due -- I think I'll keep my soul free and clear. Thanks for this write, Z, you're lovely.

Reviewed by Ed Matlack
INteresting write, ~Z~, I have thought many times that I would do this if given the chance...immortality, the ability to have what I want or need when I want it, all the desires that supposedly can be bought with the sale of my soul...ah, alas, but it is only fantasy. I enjoyed this immensely, Peace, Ed & Rufuz
