The Ballad of Delilah Logan

Delilah, the young woman with the yellow locks Light skin, brown eyes, vengeance in her walk. On the run from a past filled with gloom Can’t escape her curse; suffering and doom The darkness calls her name as she runs from the devil Monsters of the night out to terrorize and revel Blood left in her path but not by her own doing For the gift of immortality, death is ensuing Oh wow what she’d give to not have to run Every life and every soul, another mistake Her soul she would give to see the demons be gone But her curse is eternal, no way to break Delilah, the beauty with a heart of stone The queen of the dance, lonely hearts as her throne Intoxicating kiss, she brings men to their knees A hundred years of running, yet she can’t drown out their pleas To be in her bed is both a blessing and a curse One night in bliss; and the next night in a hearse But the curse is not so absolute, there’s more to it than death The trail of blood goes deep before the final breath Oh wow what she’d give to not have to run Every life and every soul, another mistake Her soul she would give to see the monsters be gone But her curse is eternal, no way to break All she wanted was to be loved; she didn’t know what it would cost All she wanted was him; but in the end he was lost Lies and deceit, adultery and sin; the price the heart pays for a fading moment A hundred years later, there’s nothing within. An eternity of torment, cursed to repent Oh wow what she’d give to not have to run Every life and every soul, another mistake Her soul she would give to see the evil all done But her curse is eternal, no way to break Visit my blog to read the rest of my Free Supernatural Poem Novel: https://freesupernaturalpoeticnovel.wordpress.com/

Hello SKAT! Thank you so much for the giant warm welcome! I haven't been able to read much on here but I can't wait to start reading your works of art! I've recently gotten back into poetry and it has been so much fun! I've written some poems that exceed the Poetry Soup character limit but I have other ways of sharing it! Thank you for being one of my first Poetry Soup "FRIENDS"!!! :)

Thank you! And I agree, poetry is kind of like Delilah, sometimes, its taking the risk of expressing and exposing your deepest secrets, emotions, thoughts, memories, experiences and desires and then living with the "consequences" of sharing with the world or admitting to yourself. I am excited to read your poetry! Thank you for the lovely comment! :)
