Be Exorcised- An Experiment

You’re not good for me
You’ve just got to go
You’ve brought me nothing....
Nothing but sorrow!

You’ve sapped all my strength
You’ve tortured my heart
You’ve crushed my spirit
You MUST now depart!

You’ve splintered my wings
You’ve wrung my soul dry
You’ve fed my mind’s beasts
You’ve made your girl cry

I’ve tried those potions
I’ve tried the fake priests
I’ve followed the rules
I’ve had sacred feasts

What else can I do?
What chant can I pray?
To exorcise you
There just seems no way!

You’ve made your own home
So deep in my head
I’m obsessed by you 
Tormented in bed

Get out! Please, Get Out!
For I must go on!
Be exorcised NOW!
For my gone!

When I am all clean
With no demon trace
Posses me once more
With your angel face!

    Eileen... You want me to call mom for some exorcism?? She is expert! But I warn you... he may never return ;-)..... Back to you poem: this is a mystical poem... With its enigmatic subject, hidden rituals, and morbid atmosphere, the poem took me into medieval ages!!! This must go to my favourites for sure!!

    WOW! To know that it goes to your favorites proves my point! I posted this when I first got on the Soup. I got NO comments. Also...only 40 views. Has my poetry changed, or is it the fact that people know me better now and so they take a chance on reading! You have proven my point! This was a bit on the weird side, but I enjoyed writing it. :)

    It seems you can't have one without the other... so much drama... what a contrast! No neutrality for you... that's for sure ;)

    This is good, I like the duality of the images.

    Thanks, Richard. The concept being she's possessed by him...longing to be free, but in the end she realizes that he can't be exorcised because he's her angel love. It is a bit strange, I admit...but glad you like it.
