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.
