Rating: NC17
Warnings: rape, worm tongue, two dicks, violence, demon sex, triple penetration

Summary: Heidi is attacked by a vicious Shadow Demon who has more than sexual violation in mind.

Syren


Upon the cliff She stands,
Lily-white skin ghostly glows in the dark of the storm swept night.
The sea a raging torrent relentless hammers
And from far below, spray sent surging up
Is crystal frosted and whipped away by now razored winds.

Her ravens fly on feathered wings
Umbral shadowed black
their cries and calls a funeral dirge with the rolling thunder merge
and lightning flash across obsidian orbs
For Her they fly and through their eyes She sees
……and on the wind her song doth distant reach, a whisper, a howl, a banshees wail seductive, compelling...
...come to me... come to me...

The galleon tossed and flung on wave wild waters,
sails lashed and slit by driven sleet and snow and ice encrusts its hull,
permeating through its decks to quell and quench what it finds within.
She smiles, her sonorous melody sliding spectral fingers through
and into each and every member of the crew,
and steals from them their bodies warmth,
coaxes out last lingering breath from quieting lungs,
plucks a final chord a last tremulous beat from faltering hearts
and all to gentle slumber leads,
laying them down where once they stood,
the toils of life now put aside,
and troubles now forgot,
and life is stilled and peaceful reigns
she claims and welcomes them to her demesne.

With no hand on helm, no living eye to see,
No voice to sound, and none its warning hear
Floundering now and heavy and tired
this proud ship with none to guide, none to steer,
empty now but for the dead,
And for the dead her klaxon tolls,
one last muster ships’ bell sounds ...
resonating echo through her hold
And all the while the ice get harder...
And fractured now her slender prow doth shake and shudder,
and crack
and splinter
this once proud galleon now is drawn
and her hull dashed to kindling with none to mourn
and She upon the cliff still stands…

And the dead wide eyed watch unseeing
While sinking down to murky depths,
all cares save one now taken and gone,
as further from the light they fall
a final image to their souls it burns,
seared forever into their minds...

...Of lilly-white skin ghost lit glowing
Of soft sensuous full lipped smile
that ne’er emerald fired eyes doth reach
Of long red hair the wind riding….
Of terrible beauty marble sculptured
Silhouetted high upon the cliff , up....on the cliff...
For the dead do see and all recall
And the dead do fear… And so they should

For when She steals thee in Her songs embrace,
Warm life’s breath she first doth take…
Then in death eternal art thou yoked
no rest is there, no final sleep
nor peace nor hope nor release nor mercy no
just rot and fade, become a shade
with eyes obsidian black and on umbral feathers take flight
for now thou art naught but a vessel only fit to carry Her sight….
forever hungering, forever thirsting, forever on the wing
stormcrowe raven harbinger of doom flitting fearfully forever through the gloom..
Yes the dead do fear... and rightly so.
And so my friend should you.

darkangelsgirl11:53am: A Memory of Bright Blessings and Raven's Wings
~For tenebraeli~

I fell head and heart first into a memory today.
That it was bittersweet is true, but such a cliche.
You were a dear, little friend and you left so much pain
Where once there was a lovely girl as sweet as spring rain.

The bitter pills you swallowed, that took you away,
They are a bitter pill I swallow as here I stay.
Four years, five weeks, almost to the day
And I still shed tears and miss the way we'd play
As if it were only yesterday....

nyx_loveless10:43pm: A Date With Death
I heard the gentle rapping on my door and knew instantly who it was; he called on me often. I looked down at myself, clad in a plain navy t-shirt with teddy bear pajama bottoms and called out, "come on in." He was someone I didn't need to impress, he already was. "This is a surprise, but I'm glad you're here." I smiled at him, hoping to warm his insides as he often told me I did.

"I couldn't stay away. I know this is wrong but..." He slowly drifted over to the couch, obviously debating whether or not to leave.

I reached up to him and gently tugged on his black sleeve, indicating he should sit, which he did. As he settled in next to me, I leaned against him, my shoulder rubbing his slightly. "Tough day?" when he nodded I did too, a gesture of understanding. "Do you wanna watch a movie with me?"

He turned his face towards me as his words gently slid over me like a caress. "I would like that."

I gently patted his black clad knee and used it to push myself up off my sage green couch. I knew a movie he'd enjoy. I slid Howl's Moving Castle from the shelf and put the disc in my DVD player. As I sat back down, my fingers burned as they did every night he came calling. I couldn't resist it anymore, my fingers found the fabric as I gently whispered; "Death, why do you hide your face?" And I pulled back his hood and gazed into his dark eyes for about two seconds before I fell away to darkness.

"Because of that."

tolstoy2479:26pm: Anyone into dystopian literature?

You can get a little hint of my new story from this famous poem of Anna Akhmatova "To Death" (also the title of my new story, check it out!)


To Death

You will come in any case — so why not now?
How long I wait and wait. The bad times fall.
I have put out the light and opened the door
for you, because you are simple and magical.
Assume, then, any form that suits your wish,
take aim, and blast at me with poisoned shot,
or strangle me like an efficient mugger,
or else infect me — typhus be my lot —

It's all the same to me. The Yenisei swirls,
the North Star shines, as it will shine forever;
and the blue lustre of my loved one's eyes
is clouded over by the final horror.

se7en_black7:46pm: Friday 11:37pm (Transcend Remix)
I have found
Inside him

The lunar twin
Of every cell
Every organ

Illuminating
Past lives.

I have found
Inside him

A safe harbor,
For mending.

(One day
When our children are old,

We will meet again
In a woods.

I will hold out my hand.)

I have found
Inside him

My own heart,
Threaded needle in hand,

Sewing itself to his.

*

My hand on the phone,
My veins pumping acid.

I miss you, I told him.
My heart a knot in my throat.

*

I have found
Inside him

The ability to let go.

I have found
Inside him

Freedom.

*

I miss you too, he said.

I nearly dropped the phone.

I smiled and felt my chest ache.

The stitches new, pulsing inside me.

*

(My name is so-and-so I will say.

Nice to meet you again.)

poetry_se7en12:05am: Divorce

I don’t think I know us anymore.

Who are we now?

You and I?

 

Skeletons?

Blood spilled?

Obliteration incarnate?

 

Who are we now?

Blood and muscle and bone

Contained in separate packages?

 

Oh sure,

Parts of us combined.

Our hearts, for example.

 

But who are we now?

I don’t think I know us anymore.

I wonder if I ever said your name

 

Without thinking I could change you

Into something good for me.

Something less painful.

 

I don’t know who you anymore.

Who the fuck are you?

And where are we now?

 

Miles

From where we wanted to be,

I guess. I’m wondering

 

If we ever wanted to be there at all.

And if not, I suppose

We have nothing to fear now.

bellhopper2110:02am: Flesh.
Such a lovely thing your flesh has.
Such supple lust it holds
It draws me to your blood lines
It makes my pupils glow
There is nothing in the way
From your life into my hands
Yet you seem to forget
Just who is in command
Let me show you how
Pleasurable death can be
When you tilt your head to the side
And surrender your life to me.



Belleh,

bellhopper215:46pm: Sizzle

Sizzle and pop,
Went the skin as it dropped
And the blood jumped all over the floor.

Twiddle and loop,
I enjoy watching you
Struggle against the power of lore.

But it's sad you dont know,
That only I alone
Can save you from the incoming pain

If you open your legs,
And make haste to beg
Quickly your blood I can drain.


Belleh,
