Succubus – female demon who takes human form, who appears in men’s dreams in order to seduce and control them, usually by sexual means. Almost vampire like, prolonged activity with such a creature could be fatal. But what a way to go ! Ladies have their own version the more familiar Incubus. The title is taken from the name given this type of being.
I know her scent
when the silence is turned up,
it is no thermal playful smoke
that comes, but a lover who
casts shade without light and
is shadow in the blackness.
Though a victim, prey for her needs,
I await my huntress,
who nightly possesses me at her will
for the purpose of her pleasure alone.
Is she daemon, a wraith or an angel
from heaven blessed,
I know not, only that we shall die
a thousand little deaths,
and for her I willingly give life.
The shallow and the shadow are we.
