A Poem by Ethale Captor

Inspired by the song Nymphetamine by Cradle of Fifth.


Rays of a black sun

Only hope to erase

The scars upon your soul

And the tears upon your face

Light of unholy darkness

Screams pillars of sound

Supporting a crumbled sanctuary

Where only you can be found

A breath for your loneliness

Oh, demonic little soul

Your mind a mortal trap

Your eyes black as coal

Once upon a long time ago

You were not one if these creatures

You were a beautiful girl

Without such hellish features

Friend to Incubus, foe to man

Your existence is truly wild

Your burning hate is strong

Your revenge is volatile

Silent screams of pain

Heart shattered like a tear

When in your darkest form

One look strikes eternal fear

No, stop, don’t say that

No, that is not true

I’m me, You’re not me

You’re not my reflection, you’re you

No, shut up, stop telling lies

Or I’ll cast this stone

You’ll be shattered

Leave me ALONE!!!

There, now you are gone

Laying in pieces on the floor, see

You’re a demon, not my reflection

I’m not a demon... You aren’t me...

So I'm not the only one who's had this conversation with themselves? The title of this was fitting, and I seriously loved this poem.

great font, the chill echoing in this is utterly captivating, the speaker in this is so blind to them self, a monster and not believing it, but knowing it all the same

Only sometimes, it depends on what it is and how it is said.
sounds like there's an inner lilith in every woman when the mood arises. sometimes it surprises us where our emotions can take us. but the woman in this poem has strength to keep that demon away and exert her true self. excellent poem.
