Satan's Breath

by Robin B. Lipinski

So fine this smell of soul upon the ethereal tongue
Sensing the flowers nectar bittered, cream fallen, soured milk, son of Adam has turned
Daughter of Eve, charms fading as with paint and scent she beckons.

He with her and her with him while together two of the same gender,
bodies swimming in motion,
tempting, refreshing pool of sex.

Trodden angel flee, wings curled in defeat, they no longer are worthy of your being
Mine, mine, mine,

This is my world for which you all 'need'
My banquet
My setting
My tastes
There is no God, no love, no purity…

Breathe in deeply, follow your 'needs'
When your lungs can no longer take its fill of life,
I'll be waiting with my kiss, my breath, my death
Do not worry child, soon you'll see.
