Demon’s Seduction

The beckoning of cruel darkness
Sends hot electricity through my soul,
Magnifying my most sacred kept secrets.

The torches of intense flames burn
With my desires, as I become one
With the underworld…

The heat of sinful ecstasy
Wildly captures my spirit,
Screaming my name as it
Echoes into a starless night…

Cold, skinless hands
of a heartless demon
Attempt a raging seduction,
But flaming emotions
rise from my chest,
Melting his hands like
dripping candle wax…
His painful shouts thrill me,
excitement that burns my very core ….

I plead and beg,
for the intense thrilling  pain,
I want more…

Oh the soul- gripping rage…
The darkness has become
a part of me now…

I’ve fallen so deep,
My heart, a frozen tundra,
I’m not sure how
I ever got to this stage..

The pain and thrills intensify,
It hurts so good, that I cry…

I’m now one…
The transformation has begun…

So wicked, I embrace the wrath.
The demon’s seduction
Is done…

Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International.
