The Dawn Of My Devil -

The Devil spoke to me
with glee about what could be, promising, possibly,
he thumbed a drum of hearts pulsing
so I could see the drug of love
that I was missing,
a tempo true and rude impossible to elude
took my breath to the hue of blue,

reflections of calm joy and coy laughter,
refractions violent and violet floating vibrantly,
demons and angels in the flesh fighting forever for admiration
of a clever and aloof Trinity demanding dues,

he said may your body be dense and follow the sequence
of the spirits with you and never miss your cue,
I was awestruck, rendering enquiry futile 
as prayers in perdition,
the clouds were copious, his face lucent & sizzling,
nefarious and dangerous these galleys and valleys are,
gamble the gambit of your soul's sanctity,

In the cold stillness consumed by a gray melody
an ancient perfume of rose blood
inflated my mind moonstruck,
a woman wise and disguised like a brilliant bandit
with persuasive eyes presented to me keys to her city,
the Daughter of my Devil was indellibly pretty and sitting lonely saying,
believe me through love and find liberty,
try your luck in rivers red
and in deep seas soliciting felicity,
pick a course and secure your rolling rope
to this feather never to pluck,
horse power and a flower dower,
love your Mother always in hallways dark,
then I was born once more -

J.A.B.  2003

    A very intriguing poem....brings my thoughts in so many directions, it might be better if I didn't fumble through a comment haha! To me, the concepts of God and Devil are two faces on the same coin, and Lilith is/was beyond good and evil(as is everything once we transcend such static constructs)....so, I am attracted to the Lilith persona. Maybe I shouldn't publicly admit such things! Ha! Deep writing, Justin, good to see amongst so much conditioned religiousity.

    Justin, I can easily see how I might have interpreted parts of this poem in a way not intended by you....but then again, that is part of the beauty of poetry in the first place; the various possible interpretations of it. "how we as souls in the flesh can be solicited, or perhaps recruited by powerful Archtypes, or ancient energies beyond our immediate perception" -- yes, I think that is wot I should have typed instead. You worded it very well.

    This poem Chris, in a way is about how we as souls in the flesh can be solicited, or perhaps recruited by powerful Archtypes, or ancient energies beyond our immediate perception - life for humans is very much akin to any other business - Lilith is an inspiration - I apreciate your praise, it is not taken for granted - J.A.B. %

    This is a masterpiece. Wonderful beautiful and flowing. I loved reading every line. "The Daughter of my Devil...Then I Was Born Once More" One Of my favorites no doubt.

    She is indeed an exciting character. Though her hurt misled her to a greater evil. She became corrupt and rejoyced in the murder of children and other bloodshed. Perhaps it was just a mothers revenge, for the angels cursed her for not coming back to Eden and

    said therefore all children of hers henceforth shall die....If I were a mother however, I perhaps would want anothers child to raise as my own rather than killing all the unborn and newborn. Revenge is a sick and twisted knife and will always turn its blade back on its beholder.

    I possess an effortless sympathy with the allegory, or truth of Lillith's frustration,perhaps betrayl, and a respect for her fierce sense of soveriegnty - makes me wonder why the Almighty & Adam mistrusted her - she must be a very intense soul - I am attracted, & revering to both of the original female personas, but Lillith excites me more than Eve- J.A.B. %

    Therefore, If that is possible, then I believe in a way who's to say we are all Eves Daughters and that some of us are not Lilliths instead....In the olden days they use to say that redheads were the Daughters Of Lillith.

    That is why we were called witches, Demons, Succubi, Creatures who were born from trees and lived without souls, and were then murdered by fire and stones and drowning. But, perhaps they were right all along. Ponder that. ~Always Jay

    Well they say that Lillith (Adams first wife) became the Devils wife when she ran away from Eden to the Red Sea, to mate and produce demon offspring because she refused to submit to Adam who treated her as a lesser female rather than an equal though she was created from the same earth as he (Which is why Eve was then created from his Rib)

    There is something dangerous & exciting about this write Jay, glad you found it stimulating - I personally like the notion that the Devil has a daughter, in a way she represents all women, in another way, she is much more than mortal - her love commands a high price - Thanks for the love - J.A.B. %

    It gave me chills too Laura - much about life, including the birthing process is a gamble, and throwing the dice can make a soul get hot with excitment or cold with panic - I got fever chills! So nice to hear from you again! J.A.B. %
