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
