The Devil

You call her The Devil
and I believe that
she must be.
“It’s her personality”
say all the boys
when they finally pull their eyes
from her body
to look at me.
Not even that pretty
playing her games
and stringing you along
just because she can.
Sometimes The Devil smiles and
it must feel powerful —
the way she pours her
charm and wit and conversation
into a g-string
for your pleasure.

I'm Heather, a married mama of two teen girls, a stillborn baby girl (7/1/12), and a sweet and wild preschool girl (4/2/14). I've been blogging at The Destiny Manifest since 2001. I like to write about appreciating all of the beautiful little things that surround us, particularly in the face of grief, infant loss and mental health issues. Every day is an adventure!
