In bed next to her thought, I lay awake
With a certain degree of fringed insanity
And a pillow so damp due to these cries
Those call out a tale of her destructive vanity

In half written love notes, there was a quest
To witness my heart's own sweet dismay
The dramatic sessions of truth in her betrayals
Popped bubbles of vulnerability, just to play

And to make me walk on the path of fear
Built from the debris of her everlasting lies
The bubble still did not burst, must I add
Even post witnessing shades of her disguise

Femme Fatale, during those dark rainy nights
With hands so soft, eyes so black and lips so red
Blood stream soaked in whiskey, appearing nude
With rain drops scattered all over her bare back

Minus the struggle, the pain and restlessness
Serpentine murmurs held me in imprisonment
Soul wrapped in cringed desires, she claimed
Creature of the night left me in abandonment

In midst of impending chaos and what's now done
Ascertained, there are no heroes in this tragic story
Well wishers there are in masks, waiting to slaughter
Demonic characters from my past, will never be sorry

Defeated today, I've never felt this stranded
Lost count of all our irredeemable sins
Tried to block echoes that bring me misery
Moral noted, evil prevails hence she's won

but you win with these words. They are the last laugh. No guilty soul could wash them away.

So much intensity, and so much pain in this one...and he images :O.

Keep writing, always. You astound me always. Honestly.

"In bed next to her thought, I lie awake..."
There's something so incredible about this line that had you repeated it a couple of times or alluded to it more than you have now, you'd have your reader gasping for breath.

Jesse - I really thought I was starting to lose with the words. So thank you!

AS - Thanks a lot girl! Btw I do not know a single Succubus in real life. I swear. :)

Aporia - See now I didn't want my readers to be low on O2. In any case there are only a handful of 'em. Thanks for dropping by! Do it again soon. :)
