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!
