Open link night

His due

Angels are all well
And good
With their wings
And such
But heaven is a long way Away
And the devil expects
His due

You say you'll pray
For me
That's what you'll do
I hope that is of comfort to you
But heavens a long way Away
And the devil expects
His due

You ask if I regret that day
And I truly do
Not what I did to that man
Only for how it’s affected you
But heavens a long way Away
And the devil expects
His due

You wonder of I'll miss anything
Woman of course I'll miss you
But unlike some the lord above
Surely knows
Heaven is a long way Away
And the devil's gonna get
His due

woot. smiles...see you then....well hopefully its far away because you are still young and have plenty of life left right? smiles.

the repetition gives this kind of a folksy lyrical feel

I like the meter of this very much. Capping "Away" works quite well sitting next to way. The second to the last and final stanzas are quite powerful. As you often cause me to do, I wonder where you write this piece from. I love that about poetry. Yours does that.

This reminds me of a blues song. Ever write lyrics?

Give me verse two with a side of killing blow, if you don't mind. LOVE it. And I say verse, because like those who have commented before, the repetition is begging to be bought on itunes...
