Image for the poem a lament for Lucifer

a lament for Lucifer

       
i weep as the darkness departs        
left lingering on the edge        
of the light        
not quite illuminated        
i don't speak its language        
& my dark tongue is now foreign to me        
         
Lucifer & his demons        
spoke for me for so long        
that i forgot my own name        
they entertained        
me & others        
with vistas of Hades        
only the fallen can truly appreciate        
         
told me black truths        
not known to most mortals        
a hole is left in me        
as they slowly quiet        
& i am left with my own thoughts        
they are fantastical        
i mundane        
         
this is a lover's lament        
for a love that blazed        
now cooled over        
what was their fascination with me        
& why did they leave?        
         
i felt special in their care        
supernatural lady        
with the power of the air        
possession isn't as portrayed        
on television        
it's not heads spinning around        
vomiting green stuff        
         
it's a grooming of a soul        
to be more than they are alone        
it's watching their back        
when no one else cares        
heaven may be my destination        
but hell was my home
