Personal Demon

Sitting in the twilight of an impending storm
I met the demon that launched my fall
from grace and beauty and all things good
there I sat in the bloom of youth
tempting the demon I sought to seduce

We danced together in the moonless night
pulling me close, he whispered in my ear
all the things young girls long to hear

Pretty child, he intoned, stay with me and never be alone
I surrendered willingly to his warm embrace
and all he asked for was my dignity and grace

  1. “…and all he asked for was my dignity and grace.” Hmmm. Hope this didn’t turn into a bad experience, but it feels like maybe it did.
