(BUFFY-VERSE SERIES) SONNET #086 of 154
AN EMPTY SPACE IN THE SOUL

rhetorical verse in Shakespearean sonnet form

 }
{BVS_086_01.01} THAT MONSTER THAT WE MARK OURSELVES to call

{BVS_086_01.02} to brighten darker moments of our lives

{BVS_086_01.03} when routine duties seemed too dull to haul

{BVS_086_01.04} up one more mount'nous day . . . It still survives

 
{BVS_086_01.05} What we thought safely buried in the past

{BVS_086_01.06} untraceable through our new camouflaged

{BVS_086_01.07} identity, which we're sure has surpassed

{BVS_086_01.08} the demons who in our dark age had lodged . . .

 
{BVS_086_01.09} . . . within our souls -- because we left that space

{BVS_086_01.10} unoccupied by Heaven's guardian.

{BVS_086_01.11} (On "Buffy" Angel is a special case:

{BVS_086_01.12} beyond that fluke, real demons don't fight kin.)

 
{BVS_086_01.13} I'll cut this sermon short. End with this shout:

{BVS_086_01.14} If God lives in your heart . . . All demons out!
