By Nicole Crane Mitchell
Who is that girl who wanders in the night,
Her hair of ebonite mixed earth in the moonlight?
Those haunting eyes of amber stare
Through the foggy haze, they seem to glare.
She's a succubus, a demon, a Lilith, a gore
Once she feeds on a man, she needs him more.
To suck his life force away, like a leech
They call her, "Lover", "Darling", and "Peach".
Feeding on them, those poor fools
Until their blood falls on the floor in pools
She's torn up his heart
She was a demon from the very start.
The only way to be rid of her
Is to call up the Angels with a gentle stir
They come on galloping their galloping steeds
She can no longer get the energy she needs.
This demon, this Lilith, and Succubi...
