Rampaging

On a wild rampage
I ride through the night
Livid with anger
Redemption in sight

Set out to pillage
Your heart and your soul
Leave nothing standing
No, nothing left whole

A prisoner of war
I will take you to me
A slave bound and tied
Not meant to be free

Part of my booty
You’re mine to demand
You must pay your dues
Obey each command

I’m furious with rage
My anger I’ll vent
You thought me serene
No, I am hell bent

There must be payment
For breaking my heart
My revenge is sweet
I’ll not spare a part

My siege is complete
My honor in tact
I’m a fierce warrior
There’s nothing I lack

You thought you’d use me
And then you would flee
You figured it wrong
Look straight into me

I've come to avenge
I see how you shake
You poor little lamb
Your stronghold I break

I know your weakness
And with it I snare
You can’t resist me
When beauty I bare

With weakness exposed
I bind you with might
I torture you well
All through the long night

I play with my toy
Until I tire
Then toss you aside
Charred by my fire

Left helpless and weak
You bemoan your fate
While I ride away
Now calm and sedate

    It is hard to see if you are angry or teasing. But a nice poem, good rhyme. I like the line "No, I am hell bent." One minor note: "intact" is a single word.

    The naturalness of your smooth poetry is beyond my description and praise. Keif kardam (I really enjoyed it)! I hope you won't remove it like some of your other excellent works.
