    Alas! I cannot endure this pain 
    you cast upon me like a beast his burden.
    Weighed down by such a heavy load,
    I stumble upon your hurtful words.


    I fall ever further behind ,
    as you disappear into the distance.
    Only once did you deign to look back,
    and I was shocked by what I saw.


    Your eyes no longer sparkled with innocence.
    Your hair was lustrous no more.
    The spell you weaved upon me was fading,
    For you were no longer that sweet little girl.


    Now your eyes were like a black abyss.
    Serpents were your hair.
    Your lips bled with the blood of my wounds.
    Ears deaf to my frantic cries.


    I see you clearly now ,
    in all your vile glory.


    The consumer of men,
    Devourer of souls.

    BadBadBear commented on Lillith


    The great mythology verse continues with this she wench Lillith! Stand aside you of gothic nature, your predecessor has returned to show you the way! Bear lusts for many more of your fine tales!

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
