birthing a demon [poem]

I would follow you into the depths of hell for a kiss
this is how thoroughly you’ve ruined me
made me unholy
this is what a newborn demon looks like
you’ve won this twisted game of temptation
convinced me to forsake myself
with just a smile
sin has never been so damn delicious
as this almost love
this not quite romance
I would rather be made a demon
than be slave to your desire
I’m a wildfire
out of control and terrifying and you
can’t contain me
hell can’t even contain me
but it can try
you can shove me down into the darkness
until the only light left is Lucifer’s wicked smile
and the last sound you’ll hear from me
will still be laughter
at least the devil knows my real name
