My demon died when he was full 

Two thousand at the funeral

All cast thier angry beady eyes at me 

Snarling they growl almost as one

Dark thunder clouds obscure the sun 

The storm I thought had cleared is here to stay 

Lust pins me with her six inch heels 

Greed urges it's ok to steal 

Pride asks me what will happen if I'm caught 

The demon drink bowls through the door 

Shouting abuse hitting the floor 

Envy turns green unhappy with her lot

A lightbulb moment helps me see

This ain't for him they're here for me

Wrath bellows out to claim me as his host 

Mortality for he who wins

The poison laced throughout my skin 

Turns lost tormented souls to would be ghosts 

I favour some above the rest 

That jealous cunt's a fukin pest 

And hatred loves being out to freely roam 

The blood fest it was just for fun 

They all belong to only one 

Smiling they signal time to take us home

    Seeing our true reflection can bring out visceral reactions.
    ' Mortality for he who wins'
    The heart always knows.
    Great write!

    Goth at its finest!! "Lust pins me with her six inch heels" being my favorite line!! No surprise there!! Ummm inner demons...some that live with us...some from the past. But they all tend to peak their big head from the corners of our minds. And many times reflect like a mirror into our bodies. Ohhhh and test us...harshly! But hell, welcome! Burn 🔥 🔥 Put them all on display!! A fucking blood fest!! We must savor them...painfully...hoping for release at the end of their fete. Hoping for....a little peace!! MORTALITY at its peak! ⚰️ ⚰️ ⚰️
