Wrath Of The Succubus

Wrath Of The Succubus

A Poem by Doodley
"

Slayer of hearts.

"
Hush! Listen! Hear that murmuring heart?
Poor cursed sconce of loveless light,
That dares to shatter apart,
As it drifts aloft this jilted night?

Floating towards Oblivion's Hell,
On the gust of a Succubus sigh,
Beaten, bludgeoned to its death knell,
Through curses, betrayal and lie!

For it once beat the path of Innocence,
As pure as the sunlight of day,
Till the talons of wanton malevolence,
Snatched the purity of beats clean astray.

With its whispers and pledges of a future,
That would illuminate the dark of the past,
To heal with a salve and a suture,
With a Love that was promised would last.

So, it gave itself willingly to the Rapture,
Soared on wings of transparent joy!
Reveled in the sense of its capture,
Unknowing it was just a Succubus toy.

To be ridden like a steed of Desire,
Lashed by chains of a demon in lust,
And when strength of its tendon did tire,
Was hurled to ground in rage and disgust!

Then raped and pillaged relentless,
With the vengeance of a Babylon w***e,
It imploded on itself, defenseless,
And sprayed scarlet on the purity floor!

Mangled by betrayal of the sinner,
Defrocked of its self love and pride,
It's beating did ever grow weaker,
As it lay dying on the barren hill side.

Then injected with a verbal toxin,
It was flung bleeding into pitiless sky,
Into a darkness and madness concoction,
Where only the blackest of Ravens did fly.

So, it drifts now in helpless abandon,
In crimson starlight where it seeps and bleeds,
With softly cries and pleas sent off random,
In its search for the home that it needs.

So, now! Can you hear not its weeping?
Can you not be its strength and its guide?
While the Succubus slumbers in sleeping,
Ease that heart to the place it resides?

Enclose it away in its Pandora's Box,
Then double and triple the chain!
And into chest cavity covered in locks,
With a lullaby to soothe all its pain.

And no more shall this heart be revealing,
For its sufferance has bled it away,
Now it will shelter alone in its healing,
And for infinite days will it stay.

But! Should ever this Succubus fiend,
Come stalking the hearth of its prey,
It shall rise with full fury of being,
And with retribution in heart will it slay!

I read this poetic tale, wide eyed and mouth open. Goodness you tell it well ! I am not actually familiar with the name Succubus (I shall have to look it up) but I shall make sure I avoid it! I felt deep pitiful emotion for the poor misguided, abused and tortured heart. Sincerely hope it heals and does, one day, beat freely again! Well done for writing this ... a timely warning to us all!

Your writings have always been of unique theme and emotions, Doodley. You could imagine a situation and form a beautiful poem around this. Tin man is one such masterpiece. Then comes this.... Amongst all that I’ve read , the most powerful are those that comes from within. The passion in this writing is so raw. This is the wrath when innocence is raped away from one’s mind and soul. This isn’t beautiful. This is wild, this is raw, this is the cry of the soul that is being torn away from its own being under false pretences. I love this. May be because I’m evil, or may be because I love the true essence.

I am well thank you.
Trust you are too. =]
In your Succubus I see Keats’ La Belle Dam Sans Merci...desirable, insatiable, vampiric, manipulative murderer. The stuff of blood-curdling gothic nightmares. Exquisite language, form, flow, cadence, rhyme- classic, eloquent and elegant epic poem. You had me at “Hush! Listen! Hear that murmuring heart?”...shades of Poe there. Master Class poetry my friend. Kudos!

What do they say?
Never ever open the box.
For when you do, your life may well be through.
Like the idea of dreaming the beautiful woman.
But not realising how true it actually was.
Epic write.
