It's time to grow up and start seeing the world the way it really is and not the way we want it to be.

succubus




with seeds of darkness flashing in her eyes
she came to me at night and soiled my dreams
i fought her, or at least, i thought i fought
but a wild, maniacal laughter
soon overtook my screams
and my lurching, grasping struggles
found me trapped between her thighs
and what i thought i ought not
turned to what my seeking sought

angel or witch, lover or bitch no matter which she came
i’d lie in my bed my head full of dread
masking a heart spiced with coal black desire
my soul to restore from this demon whore
            fresh from sulfurous pits of fire
terror surged up my spine, phlegm clotted my throat
            my blanket rose
like a cock on a vane

i had drank much sedation to still my trepidation
but medication was always a waste
my eyes yearned to be closed
while the fires embers glowed
but toothpicks held open my lids
my mouth muttered and stuttered prayers best left
unuttered:  a glossaliac gurgle,
a growl and a grumble
            one last tear as i try to repent...                

...and then with a cry i was spent

About Me

My photo
I am from West Virginia. Born in New Martinsville to a minister's family. Traveled around West Virginia and Southern Ohio growing up. The only stability I got was from my mother's side of the family in Boone County. My Great Grandfather on my father's side was preaching in Madison during the Mine Wars. He ran for the state legislature on a pro-union ticket and won only to have the coal companies tie the results up in court so he ended serving only one day out of this term. My Grandfather on my mother's side stood with the miner's at Blair Mountain and died of Black Lung when I was still in my teens. I was raised a Conservative Christian...not a Fundamentalist. Strict separation of church and state based on the understanding that what makes for a good politician is pretty much the opposite of what makes a good Christian. I'm politically radical in that I believe in one man/one vote and the only way to have political equality is to have economic equality. I'm an atheist because once I accepted the fact of my own mortality I found no need for belief in God.
