To taste the flame.

Breaking way the earths desires
Placing love with lakes of fires
Fools and mortals are all the same
None will stand nor take the blame.

Devil, demon they will say
do they know to me they pray?
Curse and claw in vain they flee
In black and darkness return to me.

Dead is flesh and cold is heart
but how it tastes when ripped apart,
I will call and you will weep
Drink your soul with a gentle sweep.

Deaths a child in my embrace,
Its life's last look upon its face.
GIVE ME ALL YOUR EARTHLY DEAD!
COME TO ME AND I'LL BE FED!

you will come and you will fight,
Cant you see I am the light?
Your living flame begins to fade,
Now you see I am the shade.

    Wow. My living light is beginning to brighten the path of all whom I meet on this journey. At my age, one would think of the Light fading, but not so in my life. Blinding Light precedes my feet. You are starting to get a bit dark for my taste in poetry. You hooked me in with that featured write... I'll try one more, Mr. Shady. Love, Karen
