The Allure

Wrapped in suffering.
Stroked with terror.
Caressed with lies.
Cold scales upon me.
Broken nails against my thighs.

Beyond pain. Beyond fear.
You can't visit me here.
I beg for seduction.
And smear my soul
Into the alure.

Sinister whispers in the night.
Rob me of my will to fight.
To surrender to something other than you.
One of the demons.
There are more than a few.

This terrible beauty.
This penence of soul.
This place where I land
When I loose all control.
When I loose myself.
