Deal with the Devil (Picture Prompt #7)

Dark
brooding 
blood streaking down
claiming the throne
throwing down the tormentor
easing your pain.
I was the light to your darkness
you were the corruption to my innocence
we found our way
we found our path
we found our love together.
Injustice.
Woe befall those who hunted us
enraged
good could outweigh the madness
the immorality
that had been yours since you were a boy.
Came in the night
they did.
Tearing me from the warmth of our bed
cowards they were
waiting…..
waiting …..
waiting…..
until you were dead.
Or so they thought. 
Raped
murdered
drawn and quartered
left hanging at the crossroads
an example for all.
Your return.
A pact with the devil
to get vengence
to make them pay.
Rage imbued you with strength.
Terror reigned
calamity
decimation of an entire court.
Sated
not sated…..
Pain whiplashes around
you sit
quiet contemplation
wondering how to get me back.
