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!

It is rare to find a poem so complete. There is so much to appreciate in this imaginative, beautifully rhyming, epic poem. When most of us have trouble holding a thought, its awesome to find such continuity, clarity and elegance in story telling. The heart is central to the theme and the travails of the heart are outlined so well. I feel that this organ is the subject of much confusion and misunderstanding. It is useful only as long as it contributes to enlightenment of the soul. Yet, it becomes more of a nuisance If its woes are dwelt upon too much. Too much loss of time that could be well spent on greater pursuits. I loved this poem dear Doodley.

Though providing a night of inflamed lust, the succubus inevitably takes infinitely more than it gives.
Masterful post, D; Poe, himself, would be proud!

WE need to trade out the poison and toxic waste of others out of the heart for new untouched blood- only the pure of heart will see the kingdom🌹

Well that is just out there like not many know how- bravo- and what an impact it does make- understanding and truth and knowing show through- isn’t it amazing when u just know and have learnt and when you seek you find- I love the reference to Babylon - though maybe Jezebel might show up some time as well- yes what the flesh makes one so if your eyes and ears are closed- trials and tribulations- wonderful poem such touching imagery used- Thankyou for sharing your understanding🌹

I enjoyed the 'fire and brimstone' element of this, and it rhymes with a meter and style like an old hymn, as well as using much similar language. I like how your work is steeped in religious tome, it gives it theme and importance.

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.
