Succubus | A Poem

As the moon peers periodically
Between smoke-gray clouds set
Against the canvas of the night sky
She comes to me with love
And a hunger that weakens her
I lament that I can offer
No remedy to that which ails

Ours is a love forbidden
By the laws of nature
If not the laws of man
Spawned by an infernal sire
Her skin burns from a fire within
And matches the blaze of passion
We hold fast to one another

We embrace as lovers do
And fall victim to our lust
Which knows no bounds
And it is during our coupling
That I witness her raw power
That magical charm, that piercing gaze
She beguiles me and I wilt

How did it come to be
That this creature
Borne of man and demon alike
Had chosen to love me
A mere mortal woman
Who has not the power
To sustain her

Note: The theme here deviates from tradition, instead has a succubus choosing a same-sex mate.
