incubus - succubus 



As I look and I see the snakes!
They fallow me reminding me…

“You will fail boy”
I continue to fall, hurt mentally.

“You will die for chasing what you love”
I see my life flash by remembering so little.

My past is a blur,
It continues to stir.

Day by day they circle above.
Taunting me, scaring me.

“You are no good”
I think I’ll never measure up.

“you are a disgrace”
I doubt I’ll even measure up to anything good

Cacodemon! Why won’t you leave?
Abaddon! Why do you haunt me?

I am trapped inside,
Going mad inside.

Oh, Angle of the Abyss…
My freedom I now miss.
