influenza wings

By Devil lyn

have treaded over
my headless loam
& blasphemous
are the lyric petals
white liquored skin
as my
dead skinned mask
weep in SS melancholy
for shackled is my deadbolt heart ~
you want to keep me     Forever;
but as ill perfumed
are the chrome colored scorpions
trenching an old diggers grave
so is the necrophilia body
that misbehaves against
the sickened of your touch,
for even Samhain
has shivered
in orgasmic
in those post-mortem nightmares
where you blight on influenza wings
I've wept
& then
I was left                                 [behind]
to cower in those tears of rosary black;
for the weight
of your velvet tongue
still haunts me
as it once spun golds of silver
in the wee of bedtime hours
where thunder scathed
the storms in my defeated mouth;
hold me
kiss me
                Marilyn ~
I want to dance
with your Devil
in your
sweet[est] dreams
for who are    you
to disagree?

    Is this a big homage to metal music, or did you just happen to use a bunch of Slayer song titles? lol Cool concept. You spun something interesting here.

    I wrote this earlier this year in tribute to Manson`s ``Sweet Dreams`` backed by a bit (or maybe) a lot of Slayer tunes ... was looking to pen something fresh and not often seen in poetry ... but hey, you liked it, and that is all that matters ;) ... Thank You ...
