If the Devil Existed

By TaintedSaffron

If the Devil existed
He'd have the body of David
and the hands of Michelangelo - 
skilled in sculpting and dissection.

If the Devil existed
He'd have the eyes of Mesmer
and the sharp tongue of de Sade - 
magnetic and sardonic.

If the Devil existed
He'd probably be Santa Claus
or the Sandman - 
He'd be watching as I sleep.

If the Devil existed...

He'd be you.

Are you...
