Naiveté

Demons take many forms.
Former saints join the ranks,
Ranking often higher than original sinners.
Inner darkness takes hold.
Old faith breaks despite the length of time.
I’m no exception, quite the contrary.
Very unsuspecting, I fell victim easily.
Silly mistake but wiser for it.
It would be wise for you to watch out for me now.

    1. I usually like to leave things open for interpretation. I do believe though that these are the words of a fallen saint, perhaps a warning about things that lurk, that will drag you down if you aren’t paying attention, and that perhaps this fallen saint has become one of those things. 🙂
