Deceitful Tryst

Come into my parlour, child
You are cold? Come sit by my fire
Do not listen to your lover’s words
They are tainted with lust
Here, have my cloak
I’ll keep you safe

and here my heart is stolen
given. desire twisted. tryst started
your calls echo

I love you. I will always be here
I am yours
I gave myself for you
You are beautiful
Beautiful

then the voice returns

You are imagining things!
Your lover abandoned you
Wallow in your filth!
Disgusting urchin!
He loves you no more
He wants you dead

dead

my heart collapses
the voice continues
the lies believed
my soul ravaged

crashing
burning
bleeding
dying

no!
stop building lies around me
get out!
this cloak now shrouds me
I was once beautiful
but lust took me
darkness suffocating
then death

I love you. I will always be here
I gave myself for you
You are beautiful
Beautiful
You are still mine
I made you beautiful

my eyes open
darkness closed them
my heart broken
I’m beautiful?

when will I believe in myself
like you believe in me?

You will not be forsaken
The dark has been broken
Lies have been spoken
But now you are free

Free? Look what you did
Your lover just wants your soul
To burn in the fire
Do not let him woo you

enough!
my lover will not leave me
love has chained us
your salacious words will not hold me
I have taken his freedom

I am beautiful

Artist's Description

‘Being unable to defeat God through raw power, Satan’s legions decided to wound God as deeply as possible by stealing the love of his beloved through seduction. And having “seduced them to his party,” to ravish them body and soul; and having ravished them, to mock them even as they are hurled to the depths of hell…this is Satan’s motivation and goal for every man, woman, and child into whom God ever breathed the breath of life.’
- John Eldredge


Not my usual style, but this is what came out as I wrote my feelings.

Critique welcome.
