Seven Hells Have I

Devil may care
What seals my fate.
What others would share
The Devil may take.
The future forbear
Now lies in wait.
Seven Hells have I.

Power was mine
I tried to keep.
Ambition tried
Horizons to sweep.
Now love lies
Beyond my reach.
Seven Hells have I.

Pleasure sought I
More than I should.
Knowledge sought I
None others would.
Now evil gives rise
From seeds of good.
Seven Hells have I.

Seven colors.
Seven tones.
Seven paths to find.
Seven oceans.
Seven levels.
Seven hills incline.
Dark Angelic
Solemn lessons.
Seven Hells have I.

Personal and insightful. Thoroughly enjoyed this poem.
(Seven Hells Have I - Poem by Theresa Haffner.) A sad poem, woebegone poem. Unfortunately.
