(Author: Samantha Gluck)
I made the devil himself stutter on his words
Made his words slip for a moment,
A fateful moment.
Made his beautiful smile catch --
Falter for a split second
A fallen second.
I left him, yes
I admire the form of this, the imagery, the simultaneous sense of triumph and sympathy.
Special thanks to Samantha Gluck, a.k.a. @TexasCopyWriter, @MedTopicWriter, the first half of @SamAndAmySpeak, Owner and Executive Dream Weaver, All Media Freelance, LLC, and Editor-in-Chief, Freelance Writing Dreams. Despite her credentials as a writer, she has been shy about admitting her poetic ability. This is her second guest post (see also "I Promise," on the Guest Poets, Ghost Poets page.) I am proud that Samantha has chosen to "come out" as a poet on WaterPhoenix—SCOOP!
