I thought I saw evil
I thought I saw the devil as I walked passed a tree,
was it a reflection of something
or maybe it was just me.
I thought I saw a shadow of a ghost in the corner of my eye.
On second thoughts
I think again, it was I.
I thought I saw an evil apparition flash deep in my soul,
telling me that
I was not whole.
I thought I saw,
I thought I felt,
I thought it was evil at first,
but then I realised it was just me.
Then again, I think I was right on both accounts.
