Image for the poem Legion

Legion



my black heart aches  
with ashes on my tongue  
spit maggots from the pit  

legion is in discontent  
I can't quell their squabbles  
the hierarchy is in fits  

Lucifer please put them in their place  
they're out of order  
cause my goth mind to go insane  

I'm a dead horse  
they've ridden into the ground  

dethroned as your beloved  
I wear a black crown upside down  
now just your court jester  

take me back to your throne  
dressed in a gown of scorched corpse skin  
let me writhe in your presence  
taste your approval once more  

legion is in discontent  
I can't quell their squabbles  
the hierarchy is in fits  

bathed in the blood of the River Styx  
baptize me into hell  
gaze at me with dragon eyes  

bring me home to your blackened palace  
because even my demons are down  




 
 
 
 
 
 
Inspired by HadesRising poem -Down Again-
