Evil thoughts

This is how it begins;

 

How you

slide

down

the

ever so

slippery

path to

perdition.

 

One moment

you are minding your own business,

perhaps

brushing teeth,

washing dishes,

or,

reflecting on the day

and…

flash.

gristle enters your mind.

 

As if from nowhere

you think a dark thought.

 

Jealousy

Envy

Anger.

 

Intemperance.

 

Malaise

Enmity

Lust.

 

I will take that and make it mine and they will do without

or

If I don’t let them know what I know, then I can do this and that and they cannot.

 

The dybbuk.

 

It is how the devil

manipulates

time and space

how it

compresses

ideas

into action.

 

From nothing,

a little devil

sits

and conjures

thoughts.

 

Good is twisted and

turned

into

malignity.

 

Inside out,

upside down,

toho and boho.

 

Inspired by IBS’s short story, The Last Demon.

  1. Evil thoughts are part of all Lives – a very few don’t appear to show them but all have to deal with them at some point in themselves or in others . Occasional instant anger and jealousy sometimes test , but being time/life-limited changes perspective. Path to perdition is a great phrase. Do these thoughts come out of The blue or are they triggered by an action or by something inside ourselves. Is there evil ( apart from notable ‘cases’) or is there stress etc, underlying reactions , which needs to be understood and assistance given.
