A Haunting Voice

Temptress

Just for a moment my ears tune into an eerie, seductive straight from the pleasure center of my mind, a voice called out to me...

A haunting voice that brought back memories long ago buried in the dungeon area of my mind.

Temptress...It was you who led me on journeys to the other worlds inside this world...

Temptress it was your powerful grip that held me, compelled me to do your biddings...

Temptress it was you who changed people from user to abusers, from warriors to dead dreamers, from reliable to irresponsible and from human to Night Beast...

Temptress it was you with your seductress ways that kept trying to convince me that I was too strong to get like all the other zombies who are under your spell.

Whenever I am at, you call out to me, whenever I was alone you only fed me memories of deadly pleasure when I was a passenger of one of your many deaths ships...

Temptress, I know how proud your master Satan must be of you...

Even though many strong people were lucky to make you leave them alone, your record for destroying souls are unmatched...

Beware of the Temptress it comes in many disguises all filled with deadly, life taking surprises...

Watch what you drink, what you smoke, underneath that cloak, for there lies the temptress, waiting to take you on a life changing ride, that many don't survive....
