the beast and me

There's fire in my lungs.
smoke flows through my veins.
I feed the beast my soul
to gain euphoric pain.
I serve he who lives in me.
The monster in my mind.
The creature so abusive,
at times can be so kind.
In my mental hell,
I sit beside his throne.
I tend to his desire,
so I don't have to be alone.
Here He is my god.
And I, in turn, am his.
A symbiotic worship,
sealed within a kiss.
Sulfuric fumes consume us,
as we dance into the ether.
The hands of god are ours.
Hes made me a believer.
My halo, so very worn.
His horns, so alluring.
Hand in hand we walk,
love and hate enduring.
His guidance lifts me higher
than any drug could try.
His chains hold me down.
bound wings can not fly.
Walking straight and tall,
crawling on my floor.
I am his moonlit goddess.
And his filthy whore.
I wont break his binds.
I wish not, to be free.
I can never escape him,
for this beast is me.

    This is very well expressed and yes shocking. Still I believe this is a place to freely express all emotions. You do not need to stay away from me. I am a believer in Christ and I know that he can loose any chains and your wings would be freed to fly. You are a most talented poet and I do not feel you are evil or bound to the Devil. My guess is like many of us you are searching.

    I am against the devil, known to many as beast, and you are his vessel, stay away from me! we have demons controlling us who knows some of the humans are demons. . . i believe This is a very good poem but one i cannot agree. . .
