Short Poems

1. “Into the Depths”
I dive deep into your dark heart,
Where the shadows dance and never part,
An endless abyss I can’t resist,
Drawn to the pain, the agony, the twist.

2. “Black Rose”
You are a flower of the night,
A beauty born in the absence of light,
Your petals silk, your color cold,
But oh, how I ache for you to hold.

3. “Lucifer’s Love”
You are the devil I can’t deny,
A fallen angel from the sky,
Your fiery eyes and wicked grin,
Are the only hell I want to be in.

4. “Infernal Embrace”
You wrap me in your arms so tight,
A demon’s love, an unholy delight,
Your touch burns, your kiss devours,
I am yours, forever yours.

Medium Poems

1. “The Shadow’s Embrace”
In the dead of night,
Amidst the eerie silence,
When the moon is full and bright,
Comes the shadow’s embrace.

Enveloping me in its darkness,
Easing all my pain and sadness,
Whispering secrets of the unknown,
The shadow’s embrace becomes my own.

No longer bound by society’s chains,
No more pretending to be the same,
I wander in the shadow’s realm,
Where my true self is at the helm.

Oh, sweet shadow, my love and guide,
In your embrace I’ll forever reside,
For you are the only one who understands,
The darkness that pervades this mortal land.

2. “Cursed Love”
A curse upon my soul,
For loving one so cold,
Her beauty and grace,
Hide the malice in her face.

She lures me with her spell,
Promising heaven, but leading to hell,
Her kisses burn like fire,
Yet, I can’t resist her desire.

In her embrace, I’m chained,
Unable to break free, no matter how I’ve strained,
For she has cursed me with her love,
A poison sweet as a white dove.

Oh, cursed love, my heart’s undoing,
I fear I’ll never break free from your wooing,
For every time I try to leave,
Your hold on me only grows more deep.

3. “The Devil’s Temptation”
I met the devil in the garden,
In the midst of a crimson sunset,
He offered me his hand, his deadly bargain,
Promising pleasures I’d never forget.

He whispered words of love and power,
Of endless riches and unbridled desire,
I felt my will begin to cower,
As his voice set my heart on fire.

Temptation drew me in,
As he showed me a world beyond my own,
But I knew deep within,
That this was a path I could not condone.

Yet, his alluring smile and wicked charm,
Made it hard to keep my guard,
I knew that giving in would cause me harm,
But the devil’s temptation had me scarred.

In the end, I chose to flee,
To leave behind the devil’s snare,
And though he still whispers to me,
His hold on me is forever bare.

Long Poems

The Darkness of Love

In the twisted darkness of my mind,
I wander through a love not kind.
I’ve heard it said love is a light,
But in my heart it only ignites fright.

A love so deep it’s almost deadly,
A bond so tight it’s nearly unsteady.
I know I should break free and run,
But I’m captured by the power of the sun.

The endless nights and days we share,
A narcotic beyond compare.
Our love consumes and controls,
As it slowly devours our souls.

We whisper secrets in the night,
We hold each other tight,
We mold to fit one another,
Two pieces becoming a cover.

But beneath the surface, it’s clear,
Our connection is fueled by fear.
Fear of losing what we’ve found,
Fear of being left alone and bound.

We feed the fire with our grief,
Wallowing in pain and belief
That love is worth the sacrifice
But at what cost? At what price?

I long to break away and be free,
To live a life that’s authentically me.
But the thought of leaving you behind,
Leaves me paralyzed, lost and blind.

So I’ll keep walking through the shadows,
Trapped in the darkness of our love’s meadows.
Until one of us finally breaks,
And our hearts can move on- what it takes.
