Lover
By Davin Casey

Lover,
You’ve created a monster.

Friction left you so lackluster.
Tears and blood had fed your children.
All the sin within your temple
Made it look like you were guilty.

Cables bare against the ocean,
Tortured by the ceaseless waves,
All you needed were disciples;
Just a dozen souls to save.

Bread and water made you hungry.
Flesh and bones just made you weak.
Ate a dragon, most egregious.
Your hollow howled its hallowed heat,
But still it craved passionately.

Dappled in the sun and moonlight,
A haze has mystified your eyes.
Your picture-organs reflect genius.
Just harvest those who know Demise.

Surprise,
‘Tis not The Fix for which you lust.
The selfish undead
Are out to feast upon your guts.

Once again, we see the light
Of brilliance flash within your sight.
Bring life where once there never was.
Harvest the dirt. Give it some cause.

The result gives us pause.
Synthetic flesh and veins of wire
Wrapped around the bones of steel
Is more than fit to satiate you;
Just enough to make you feel
Like you’re alive.

Contrived,
The android is so cold, dear lover.
Love to a scalpel
Can’t be worth freezing over.

Fruitless…

The devil cuts some silhouette
In the shadows where you’re sobbing.
His proposition you beget
With your inviting throbbing.

“Lover,
I have a demon just for you,
Beautiful and nurturing.
Feed the monster, you’ll feel stronger.
Eat his heart and you’ll believe
In everything.
Just give me yours.”

Nothing but imaginary,
Nothing short of infamy,
This bitter lie is poisoned apple.
Your heartless body will not bleed.
It’s feeding on your reveries,
And all you do is sleep.

Wake up, you wretched beast!
Wake up and face your creation,
Your nightmare,
Which all of us worship.
It cannot be tamed, cannot be killed,
Will not roll over or drown at our will.
You are its life-force,
As it is yours.

You’ve always wanted to be a savior.
Suck it up and be a martyr.
Lover,
Be a martyr.



Author's Note: This poem doesn't feel like it comes together very well to me... But I like it. I've sat down to it a couple of times to see if I could iron it out.
All the same, I thought I would share it, and maybe you lovely lads and lasses of the Pages would have some input whilst I worked at it?
"No one ultimately knows what they're saying anyway. Are we really making art? Art doesn't belong to us. It doesn't belong to people, it belongs to the universe. It comes FROM the universe. It comes THROUGH us. When I write something, I think I know what I'm saying, but I never pretend to know the full meaning of the words."

Succubi may very well exist
Like all legends they are based on some kernel of truth
