An angelic demon

I was born in the darkest streets of hell.
To parents that I have never known well.
They did not exist, they threw me out.
Thus, I had to find my own life's route.

Hunt and drain humans, I was supposed to do.
A succubus I was, though I wish it wasn't true.
I never enjoyed forcing someone for my own gain.
But without life essence, how could my life remain?

I wandered the overworld, trying to survive.
Without hurting humans, I kept myself alive.
I stole the essence from what they called a bank.
To keep my hunger satiated, the stolen essence I drank.

That was until a human... a mortal summoned me.
I was greeted by a strange, frail man with a cup of tea.
I guessed that he wanted to talk and not to have fun.
But as I drank the tea, I felt my eyelids got heavier by a ton.

I woke up in the same room, though I felt my body was used.
I quickly escaped with my magical powers, cold and abused.
I wasn't mad, after all... he did not know I was not the same.
I cried outside on the streets, until yet another human came.

He gave me a helping hand, took me home and gave me a room.
Showed me I can be myself... he made my heart bloom.
I trusted him, we lived together, and I never returned to hell.
Our empty hearts, which sought company, for each other in love fell.
