She overtakes me
in a midnight slaughter,
the demon child,
Satan's daughter.

I never knew what
hit me from beyond,
she was temptingly beautiful,
golden and blonde.

You would never guess
the pain she held,
as I was dragged under
by her evil spell.

The witchcraft, the screaming,
the blood in the room.
This was a wedding and
this devil was the groom.

It all started on
a peaceful day,
a walk in the park,
with dogs at play.

She came up to me
and started to chat.
Next thing I knew
I didn't know where I was at.

The park and the dogs
all disappeared.
The blue skies were
replaced with darkness and fear.

I was tied to a table
like the evening meal.
She told me not to struggle,
it would be easier to deal.

She pulled out some
knives, a bell and a broom,
she called to her sisters
who entered the room.

The area was filled with
the darkness of their souls,
They started to chant as
they opened their scrolls.

I knew any minute
my life would be done,
so I decide right there
to have some fun.

I started to shake and
convulse uncontrolled,
my face all contorted,
my voice big and bold.

I said, I am the Devil,
Lucifer from the pit,
You have done well
now release this idiot.

They looked at each other
with such a surprise.
Giggled and screamed,
with tears in there eyes.

They started to chant
and run around the room,
casting their spells off into the gloom.

I yelled once more at the top of
my lungs, release him right now
or this wedding is done!

They stopped in their tracks
and seemed quite unsure,
till I screamed a horrible scream
and they ran out the door.

Left all alone on this
cold hard slab,
I thought to myself
I'm lucky I'm not stabbed.

So I opened my wings,
and ousted my tail,
and broke my limbs free
without hardly a flail.

I escaped with my life
so precious that day,
Because I pretended
to be the Devil,
this Devil got away.

Cute. Very. You could have gone into a little more sensuousness, but then it wouldn't have been the same poem that I liked. Great!
