The Demon Within
Gentle beast rush out your pain on me with burning fire,
The flame will burn out the venom of revenge that lies within me;
Peace upon the dark mage who found me in the scorching pyre,
Pluck out my eyes in your own malicious defence let me not see.
Hell fire is the dark fire which bends me lower in my skin,
The demon of the hot cauldron so vile is forcing me to scream;
Don’t tempt me black danger for your peace is only sin,
But nothing other than revenge can cease this burning dream.
My lover defiled my very soul to crumble in the embers of the fire,
The morning of the hellish red dawn covers my anger with blood;
I asked him to plead with my heart calling him sire,
But he banished me into this kingdom of tears in everlasting flood.
Christos has shut the gates on my face while the night beckons,
Faustus was lost in his own intellect & in his footsteps do I too;
The light is leaving my soul with hours, minutes & seconds,
My lover has tainted our love with black spit so what must I do?
I shall rise up from the abyss to meet my love with death,
I shall crown the demon with the qualities I possess to ensnare;
The demon within me shall exhale a blood curdling breath,
I’ll plague the lover of my life with evil beyond all compare.
