If Only They Had Listened

Lost
vague shadows
moving
barely glimpsed
grey world
covered in dusted fog
no longer going forward
never going back
feet mired
tar like chains
wrapped
ankles tight
allowing 
no escape
no loosening of ties
keeping
bound to ground
to unholy unions
blessed by the devil
cradled with lust
by angry men
stupid women
yearning for self to be free
lost
sold 
one to the other
puppet
broken 
gleaming madness
selected talons
eyes shimmering 
hatred
deranged rage
hunting 
coming
pacing
screams renting
come upon
broken cadaver
sated succubus
really
they should have listened…..
(to us)
