Dark Revenge...A witchs poem


I won’t take it anymore

My thoughts chaotic as I cross the floor

With angry hands taking what I need

The hunger for revenge demanding to feed

Sanity left far behind me at the door


In the darkness the candles dance like wildflowers

As I prepare for the unholy hour

The magic circle all around

Drawn in blood soaking the ground

As I summon ancient forgotten evil to devour



Their mocking faces haunting

Their words in my head cruel and taunting

My rage impossible to quell

As I start the ancient spell

The room filling with my dark chanting


My whole body burns with magic

Words spilling from my lips, dark and mystic

The spell growing even stronger

As I summon more forbidden power

No longer their victim small and pathetic


The shadows swell, consuming the fire

Feeding on my hate and desire

To have them meet a face worse than death

To seem them breathe that last fatal breath

This is all that I want, and all I require



Screaming in agony as darkness takes hold

Paying the price of a soul now sold

Giving life to beasts new form

Evil from my hatred born

Vile, heartless and viciously cold


Unleashing the overwhelming force

I fall back unable to stop the dark course

Of revenge and pain that I have created

A demonic thirst that won’t be sated

Ruthless and deadly without remorse


It lashes out into the night

Filling my mind with a terrible sight

Blood and screaming fills the air

As it hunts my tormenters without care

In their fear and pain we both delight



The night fills with forbidden danger

With evils never-ending hunger

One by one they all fall

Voice’s silent no more names to call

 Killed by this their self-inflicted horror


But the spell is not yet done

I can feel it return to me like a smoking gun

Aimed straight for my fear filled heart

It hungers to tear me fully apart

For the forbidden magic I’ve wickedly spun


All magic returns three fold

I can hear my mother’s voice scold

As the darkness thrust’s itself into my body

Forcing a scream thick and bloody

Lost and trapped in vengeance’s hold



Vile darkness overrides my will

Hungry for more, wanting to kill

Soundlessly I scream in my head

Filled with my own horror and dread

Fighting against my own summoned evil


Staring lost into the mirror

My red eyes wide with fading terror

Demon replacing my sold soul

Leaving me absolutely no control

Summoned vengeance now my only master

I enjoyed it. A very good lesson that we practice daily what you send comes back times 3,.

Wow, This is awesome. No-one can write a demoniac fury better than you. Kept me spell-bound throughout.

What fury unleashed! I do like your message that in the end we reap the fruits of our own thoughts and actions. "Chickens will always come home to roost." as Malcom X used to say. Great hub.

Creepy per your standard. This sounds like an exhilirating yet terrifying ride for the narrator. I've always been too fearful of the underworld to delve into the ritualistic and forbidden. Scary stuff.

as much fun as this dark revenge was to write I really wanted it to be a warning, a cautionary tale of reaping what we sow

Ah to be writing again :) I do have to admit that I was a bit unsure when I first started writing this one, I think that's why it ends the way that it does,an exciting ride that ends with nasty results for a vengeance filled heart.

glad you liked it

I liked this because, it has a moral. We reap what we sow, indeed.

I read somehwere recently that, if there is something we dislike about something / someone it's time to take a good long look in the mirror because, what we see in them that we dislike so much, is also within ourselves and, that's why we don't like them/it.

This was very deep and flowed so well. Beware of seeking revenge, it can come back to bite you, uh huh~! :)

Thank you for visiting me and the comment.

Is there a maleficence that lurks beneath the surface of our morals ? a most base and ignoble instinct that feeds on our anger,hate and lusts. Waiting for those unguarded moments to be release like a pack of feral dogs? How vivid your poem calls forth these forgotten and ancient ones as I am transfixed and bewitched, unable to escape this tale of dread and horror :)

being spiritual beings I firmly believe that there is much more to this world then just what we see, be it demons and angels or something much more older than even those concepts. I am so thrilled and flattered that you found this to be an absorbing read... thank you!!!

leni sands
