I’ve broken into exile

I’ve broken into exile
Begging forgiveness from myself
For things I’ve never done
… for things I know I will do
There is no escape from this place
I am owed this eternity of torment

If love be the anchor into Hell

If love be the anchor into Hell
I choose to die with you

Flooding the emptiness with tears and dread

Flooding the emptiness with tears and dread.
Fading hearts scream until they are bled.
To death.
They cast their shadows for misery’s end
While rivers of darkness ascend.

To reclaim his heart

To reclaim his heart:
a deafening silence,
a growing despondence
and ribbons of scarlet satin
draining from me.
In him, I am nothing.
My sacrifice in vain.
His heart longs
no longer for me.

The Succubus

Within her soul
Indeed I saw the beast.
I saw her heart, her flesh, her desire.
She wanted him, my Beloved.
It was not love, but lust.
And torture upon me.
He would not atone
for he knew nothing
of this affair.
