The Burning Times

freaky-wallpapers-for-halloween

The winds blow cold as darkness falls on Salem

The old fortress still visible in the night

Blood red skies bathe the moon in crimson

As the air grows thick with negative light

 

The screams of many can be heard here often

As horrific torture is relived in the cold

Relentless persecution of the innocent ones

Brought on by fears of stories they were told

 

False trials held with no intent to find justice

Prosecution at any cost the final decision

Penalty of death a high price for witchcraft

Thousands of lives ended with evil precision

 

Women of covens brought swiftly to justice

With the use of fire, water, axe, and rope

The truth of the witch brings supernatural life

While restoring the purity of newly found hope

 

Age old times of these burnings at the stake

Bringing shame upon the ones holding power

For revenge shall be sought from here ever after

As the Almighty hand of God strikes the hour

 

White light of the witch turned dark by the fearful

Once pure intentions are now turned malevolent

What was once true beauty of nature misunderstood

Now becomes Evil incarnate strong and prevalent

 

When the night bathes the moon in a crimson hue

Find yourself far away from the site of the burnings

For the sinister things that the wicked undertake

Are retaliations of the murdered innocent returning

Hell To Pay

imagesZ9PLY4BQ

A once shining beacon of purity

Spiritual young woman of God

See’s her faith find dark obscurity

As Demon’s seeds are put to sod

 

White light of love shone bright

An entire life so eternally devoted

Dark light brings fear in the night

As the Ferryman’s ship is floated

 

A pawn in this timeless conflict

Unarmed against evils cunning

Twisted turn impossible to predict

Vision of darkness truly stunning

 

She recollects nothing of her past

Her inner light has all but faded

As Satan’s hands are closing fast

Virginal spirit has now been traded

 

Put into the service of malevolence

Wickedly carrying out His commands

Tricking new souls to final deliverance

They in turn submit to His vile demands

 

Tragic sheep once found now ever lost

Driven mad with bloodlust so voracious

 Kneel at her feet as she counts the cost

Preying on lustful souls of the salacious

 

So should you cross her wicked path

Do not be fooled and be ever so wary

Keep your distance, avoid the wrath

Of she who was known as “Sister Mary”

 

Remember every soul is up for sale

As we are just spirits in an empty shell

So take note of our Sister Mary’s tale

Or our soul’s too will forever burn in Hell.

Styx (Forever Together)

images

Panic stricken defines our victim’s calling

Into depths unknown and quickly falling

Frantic memories emerge while thinking

Pictures painted on a mind that’s sinking

 

She struggles against what she knows best

Devils tears torture with promised unrest

Darkness so terrifying that it truly burns

As a nightmarish reality twists and turns

 

The waters of Styx are bathed in hells fire

Set ablaze by a Demons ceremonial  pyre

Not one but two now descending at speed

Waters get darker where spirits are freed

 

Together forever was the deal they made

Blood on parchment so quickly betrayed

Forever together very soon they shall be

Devils promise of forever; not forever free

 

So now they are together forever it seems

In an ocean of torture, a sea of bad dreams

Reaching his love, once again they embrace

But all love is gone, only grief in it’s place

 

Lucifer’s ruthless game of deceit is at hand

While river consumes his prey on command

Drowning them all in sins of lust and desire

Delivering them to this infinite ocean of fire

Panic

demons

Icy fingers clawing at the back of a fear stricken mind

Voices of suggestion imperious and insidiously corrupt

They laugh while frayed ends of sanity rapidly unwind

As the sounds of so many silent screams violently erupt

 

The bitter cold of ominous shadows never take leave

Constantly reminding of this anxieties stunning scope

Solitary soldier begging frantically for souls reprieve

Alone on this battlefield inside his mind without hope

 

A manic nature seeks shelter from the inevitable storm

Heart racing scared through forests of taunting visions

Reality bending at will creates deviations from the norm

Suggestions from within wickedly informing all decisions

 

A marionette to those so grippingly in control of the head

Actions are dictated by the tongues of malevolent beasts

No clear escape from the torturous grasp of unholy dread

 Spawned into the consciousness by Godless black priests

 

A warriors will to survive an onslaught of eye blinding pain

Only one escape from these hellions controlling his thought

As the sharp pinch of dawns needle brings light to his brain

Treatment but no cure for insanity’s war for ages hard fought

 

Contradiction In Black

 Satan_by_eidemon666

I see the inside from far outside the boundaries
While images of the exterior come from deep within
My lasting impression of absolute angelic purity
Wears the guise of explicitly lustful carnal sin

To say I am a liar would be God’s honest truth
Yet I have never spoken falsely over so many ages
I have shaped wise men from simple earthen clay
Commanded lunacy be inflicted upon the wisest sages

What some see above would be my biggest downfall
As what exists below is the very thing that lifts me
 While the light illuminates the slightest positivity
It is inside darkness that my essence comes to be

A myriad of names can be called to bring me forth
I can likewise be found under moniker of nameless
Forcefully I shall direct the strong and the willful
Or subtly coerce the humble souls wandering aimless

I appear to be two sides of a very complicated coin
Tossed to the wind defining such a simple contradiction
 A seemingly benevolent demeanor draws so many close
 Only to find the malignant truth of malevolent infliction

Rise To The Occasion

waking the dead

Once again an infrequent occasion is upon us

The time when calendar coincides with moon

In night sky our lunar bystander shines full

As if to cast a spotlight on dire circumstance

 

Time has arrived for the quiet to be interrupted

As the silent ones shall once again be heard

Some recently suppressed, others quelled for ages

Mystic prophecy proclaims they shall rise again

 

As the world turns, so now does the sacred earth

Coming alive with such a terrifying resurrection

Souls of the wrongfully dead reunite with mortal remains

As the unholiest of all reanimations comes into being

Zombie%20horde%20in%20nigh%20full%20moon

From the ancient natives ruthlessly killed for their land

To innocent bystanders taken away from family and love

All shall now be given a chance at vengeful retribution

Their time for retaliation is upon us as corpses walk again

 

A reclamation of life to seek vengeance has been granted

With an evil twist that could not be expected or prevented

 Innocent and guilty alike shall fall victim to this uprising

There will be no escaping this insurrection of the damned

 

So hastily say your prayers, make peace with your maker

Plead that your fate should be dealt swiftly and mercifully

For our time has run out and the tables have been turned

Predestined apocalypse on this Friday the 13th’s full moon

Fate’s Rhapsody (The Eternal Waltz)

I would like to introduce my friend and newest DUET partner Desiree from “Sea of Desire”. I was an instant fan of her work there and knew right away that our chemistry would lend itself to the creation of  a magical dance with words. Please drop in and see what else her site has in store for you. She is such a creative and diverse talent that I am sure you will find much to your liking and be as impressed as I am with her overflowing talent. You can find her at www.seaofdesire.wordpress.com

It seems so cliche as our eyes met across the crowded room

 

There was nothing ordinary about my thoughts you did consume.

 

Drawing us together, our connection could not be denied

 

At the center of the dance floor our bodies did collide.

 

A sudden tempting turn and most tantalizing twist of fate

 

Would see you to my waiting arms and quickened pulse create

 

Instantaneous imagery of perfection and wanton lust for life

 

Impervious to my fiery gaze, beauty cuts like sharpened knife

 

Hand in trembling hand, heaving bosom to broad chest

 

Our bodies attuned one to the other in our salacious quest

 

Within the confines of your arms, inhibitions soon fell away

 

I hid my rapturous orbs from view as my secrets they betray

 

Countless vibrant sensations came to life within your touch

 

As if I now contained the mysteries of life inside my clutch

 

A perfect stranger that it seems I have known for many years

 

My only hope is that this ethereal beauty is exactly as appears

 

The music was orchestrated by the melancholy of our hearts’ strings

 

As they intertwined to give us hope for what the future brings

 

In harmony, moving as one, our congruent spirits soon did soar

 

Gliding through shadows, searching for desire’s celestial shores

 

New land conquered through the beat of  two hearts as one

 

The pulse sets the rhythm for our new adventures just begun

 

Overwhelmed by bliss eternal emanating from your charms

 

No words describe the elation that we found in each others arms

Red Eyes At Night

eyes

Figures move and shadows twist

Among the trees and darkened mist

Always present at midnights fall

Daunting eyes come again to call

 

Ever watchful and always there

Crimson daggers pierce the air

Silent fury and noiseless taunting

No escape from this tortured haunting

 

Familiar with their brand of cunning

No way out, and no sense in running

As evil beckons from every side

From wicked vision nowhere to hide

 

These unholy hunters with red eye’s of fire

Swiftly move in at the command of their sire

My fate’s clock expires as sheer terror abounds

My silent captors I recognize as Lucifer’s hounds

Soul Sacrifice

A_Deal_With_The_Devil_REDONE_by_repture

Firelight in a darkened room

Across oaken table we sit

Radiant in It’s human form

Traveler from It’s fiery pit

 

Misery and dissatisfaction

Compels this entity’s arrival

Cries for help above unheard

Disenchanting mere survival

 

Foolish pride and ego proclaim

Entitlement to earthly bliss

Summoned  inferno’s overlord

Desires met by serpent’s kiss

 

Wields archaic parchment scroll

And an ornate feathered quill

Beckons me to scribe my mark

In crimson ink of bloody spill

 

Evil one rises, grins and laughs

My heart darkens in guilt’s regret

Hellion takes it’s prize and flees

Leaves me convinced our pact is set

 

Trepidation replaced by ecstasy

Our agreements hedonistic feast

Pleasures of the mind and flesh

Provided solely by the Beast

 

Wanton debauchery consumes

As wealth and power abound

Satisfaction should be limitless

Why am I lost in bliss newly found

 

The Devil’s trick leaves me empty

The pleasure and power surrounds

Yet insatiable my appetite for more

The need for satisfaction astounds

 

Chase for gratification winds down

Lucifer’s cunning plan comes to be

My body a shell of it’s former self

My mind now frayed ends of sanity

 

My contract revoked unfulfilled

Satan’s mocking suitably unjust

It’s dealings never held validity

But It’s temptation demanded trust

 

And so charred ashes to ashes

Become Hell storm’s dust to dust

As my greed for greed destroyed me

I was condemned by my lust for lust

Sinful Veritas

 SINFUL VERITAS

 chemical-wedding-wings-eerie

Stormy clouds enveloped them

Hiding their meeting in the sky

Where dark angels congregated

With majestic ash covered wings

 

This gathering so dangerously forbidden

For the dark should never romance the light

But Heavenly allegiance holds no power here

As wings of white radiance tangle with those of fiery brilliance

 

Their passion rolling inside the thunder

Producing sparks that light up the sky

Their hungry appetite a clapping crescendo

Frightening earthly inhabitants with their rendezvous

 

The Demonic and the Divine twist eagerly in torrid revelry

Pushing boundaries of unspeakable eroticism and treacherous taboos

This heightening fervor becoming a furiously euphoric frenzy

The pure and possessed alike hunger for ecstasy and salacious satiation

 

  Will love overcome their bond and paint beautiful rainbows in the sky

Or will the deviance of dark wreck destruction outside our front doors

The romance of light battling the lust of dark within our atmosphere

Strong impassioned fervor between two forces longing to be one again

 

Nothing righteous could ever come from this unearthly carnal carnival

Writhing deities cast shadows of illicit acts performed by both angels and demons

Mankind is brought to it’s knees by lascivious desires sent down from a hole in the sky

The overpowering strength of reckless abandon spills forth casting a spell on all humanity
