This is based off of one of the characters I let my first boyfriend use in a comic he never really finished. This shows what I think is a more human side to a fallen being to be honest. To those that are determined to say that I'm a blasphemer for my work go ahead and flame me. I don't care. Comments are appreciated.

Darkest figure in the corner
What could you be thinking?
Light Bringer of our time
Why cower in fear?

You warned me to stay away
But I forgot when I saw the gnash
Across your body
And the hand mark upon your face

You don’t take such abuse
Not since you were cast down
You’re gonna hunt him, won’t you?
I would if it were me

Sword at waist and chain whip in hand
Some have said you’ve grown quite mad

Time wears on and here I wait
For the master
For my friend
Till they come back home

Tall figure coming
Walking, flying?
I can’t be sure
My eyes have lost all sense

They haven’t changed
Only a white streak on their frings
Shows that time has passed
I did my duties
Till my death
I will see you again,
Dear Lucifer.

it is the light barer that brings the light with in the making of ones purpose as you say it is "They havenít changed
Only a white streak on their frings
Shows that time has passed" that is beyond all i ever hoped to hear..

I do not see this Lucifer as the devil we know from the Bible but possibly a victim of abuse and the narrator is his friend--maybe even his lover or alter ego--a split personality like Jekyll and Hyde.

"Why cower in fear? ... You warned me to stay away" is why I saw Lucifer the way I did. I've read Sybil and it sounds here that the narrator and Lucifer may be the same person. One runs to the other after suffering abuse.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 7/15/2008
The intrique between good and evil, white and black, God and the Devil is a special one we all sometimes balance on the line of. As Lucifer was actually an Angel at one time could he still have some redeeming qualities? Who knows but he is definately an amazing figure who has fueled the imaginations of writers for eternity. I am an agnostic and do not believe in any organized religion so as such I cannot believe in Licifer any more than I can believe in a virgin born savior but I do believe in good and evil. Keep on writing Ms. Stember, I find your outlooks refreshing.
