Devil In Disguise - Poem by Ruth Walters

Tear away her chains,
those naughty wrist cuffs,
necklace, hot boots,

see, under her pink camisole,
there's a heart beat,
fading, diminishing.

Tear away her smile
and there's a dark place,
mixed with poison
and it will be!

String along for the ride
and she'll kiss you,
lick you,
destroy you.

Tear away from desire!
She's a demon,
a she witch
a devil in disguise.

    An insightful portrayal of a succubus - an enchantress, whose stock in trade is destruction. Lovely poem indeed. (Report) Reply

    For some there could be no better way to go than with a devil woman. Good concise and well structured write. (Report) Reply
