Infernal Love





chained to stone cold walls
afraid to roam once more
over lush valleys
and sacred mountains
for fear it will hurt them all

it found love before
that rapturous bliss
breaking all the rules
just to be with the one
that warms its winter heart

but the fire once stoked
shall brightly blaze
it’s heat ready to consume
and burn earthbound flesh
leaving nothing but ashes in its wake

and as the fiery inferno died down
all it once loved was gone
everything razed to the ground
and of the one it desired
just a flash of memory remained

oh how it raged and roared
for love was denied once more
a curse it was the fire within
when cold heart is warmed
hell is there lying in wait

and so it turned to the shadows
and the embrace of the forbidding tower
afraid to spread its wings
to take its freedom to the skies
and seek another heart to love

yet isolation it cannot bear
stealing damsels here and there
leading seeking knights to cross
its home, the tower strong
to see if love will come knocking at its door

but none has stood its test of fire
their screams echoing well into the night
as their flesh bound to metal light up the sky
just because love came to life inside
and so they burn before her eyes
