Gullibles Travels - Poem by dave sherratt

Greying hair and changing mood
A broken Lady fallen from grace
pitted skin, carved by evil tools
demonic gestures cover her face
eyes of odium, black holed suns
stare of punishment and look of hate
crooked snout, smirk so fictitious
lipstick of toxin, kiss of fatality
a speared tongue, vengeful words
revenge her function, years of pain
she to was once loved and left alone
in the shadows of an eternal night

lost her pathway, travelling unaided
torturing others to avenge her wound
meeting the one that promised true light
fulfilling her need, to satan she is bound
filthy and evil, drenched in hells sin
a whore of beelzebub, a goddess of murder
she is now complete, finding her heaven
pastel tinted hair, not a natural shade
for the lower she go's
the darker it grows
and drops right down on her knees for satan

felated satan, laughing out loud
fell south of heaven, son of a jackal
incubus, libertine
demoniac female
sewn his future, they scream, integral lovers
malicious lust, expeditious sex
mission complete, moves onto others
she weeps, he questions her weakness
'you swore your strength to me forever more'
a mighty rap, she is finished, dead
satan's lover is now no more

i remember when she was a quiet lady
quiet in her ways, gentlest of smiles
her heart was like a fortress, closed to every word
timid and shy, she's stubborn yet kind
but her unstained heart was about to turn black
easily led, easily fooled, offers she'd take
obsessive satan, a new toy to use
then caged alone, and alone did break

    Oh, how I enjoyed the venom of this one. An antidote to those sugar-sweet sickly poems so often encountered here. Top marks, Dave.

    Love, Fran xx
