Succubi swallows
Substance pure
Teeth like knives
Stabbed in the mind
Of an embryo

Take another look
In your victim’s eyes
And know the killer
Will lie in the bed
They incised upon us

Faded lies
Lie cold
And feel
Traitorous ties
Bind blind
The infant atricial

Flying blight
Swings high
And cracks
The surface
Of the holiest mirror
But unseeing
Visual stimulant
Just has me
Seeing clearer

Embalmed desire
Lies dead upon
An epitaph
Crushing those
Who once
Held the damned
Icon upon their
Ever-hopeful shoulders

Smiling stranger
Swoons when danger
Caresses and cuts
A flash of red
From the seat
Of its bliss

    General CommentRumbling in a similar manner to "The Disenchanted," but this time the speaker can no longer fathom his/her condition and is now slipping out of their former disillusioned "reality."
