The Curse from Madame Rouge

The Curse from Madame Rouge

Cloak shifts and the night is still,
I find myself savoring the chill.
Heart and earth in syncopation;
A surge of fascination.
The beat that built the firmament
Now drives forth this devilment.
I stalk the night’s humanity
To feed and find serenity.

You must know me for who I am,
I am Hunger and I am damned.
I can do all things but one,
And that is to stand and face the sun.

The hariden that pulled me down
Drank the flood in which I drowned.
The tongue that burrowed in my flesh
Soothed my fear with its soft caress.
I slept the sleep of decadence
As Madame Rouge fed me sustenance;
Taught me wisdom beyond my years
And set me loose among my peers.

I curse the mother of this bane,
That succubus from ages past,
Who stole my soul with but a bite
And in whose shadow I am cast.
To wander the world all alone
And hunt; to feed eternally.
To kill and kill for hunger’s sake,
I find myself – a calamity!

You must know me for who I am,
I am Hunger and I am damned.
I can do all things save one,
And that is to gaze upon the dawn.

You must know me for who I am,
I am Hunger and I am damned.
I can do all things save one,
And that is to stand and face the Son!

  1. Vampire…

    and I take it the last word, last line was deliberate. "Son" as opposed to the earlier "sun".  Crucifix, and all that good stuff.

    Better get us some garlic….!  

  2. Yes it was deliberate.  This is actually a song I wrote many years ago.  I just wrote a prequel for it a few weeks ago that I will post soon.
