Satan Offers a Do-Over for Shadows and Light Poetry Contest

Satan Offers a Do Over

I am standings with Satan
On the edge
of the fiery pits of hell

watching the tortured souls
burning in the flames
screaming out in pain

Satan is pointing out to me
All the various exquisite torture

that I was about to enjoy for eternity
in his corrupt, polluted, hellish words

as a reward for my sins, and crimes
things I did commissions and
And things I have not done omissions

Malfeasance and misfeasance to be legal
About it he said

But he said
There was one cosmic exception
to the rule

And he was obligated by law
Even Satan has to follow the law
To explain it to me

That when a couple
Is a soul mate couple
which is very rare

one of the rarest most beautiful things
in the whole universe
something that even Satan admires

Satan has to offer
The couple a cosmic do over

And in this case
I would qualify

I would be sent back
to the day I met my wife
And have all the knowledge
Of my life intact
