Xaphriel's Choice

by Xaphriel Luciferos

Age Group: Adult



The temptation of night, it grows stronger still
Attempts to convince me to bend to its will

Rich, musical voices, they promise rewards
Appeal to ambition, my heart's deepest core

My id cries to stop. ego longs for power
A might which would force lesser beings to cower

In view of my strength; I would be a dark ruler
A tyrant of terror, no man could be crueler

To strike down my foes and demand that they serve
This God amongst Men- This dream I deserve!

Revoke the false reign of the Phillistine Kings
And deliver true justice- What pain I could bring!

Yet now Virtue speaks, asks 'Why be infected
By Vice's corruption?'- But why be subjected

To morals and caring? The conscience to grieve
Would only delay what I hope to achieve

I cannot deny these deep and dark dreams
My soul longs for blood, the enemy's screams

Angels persuade me to walk in the light
Nephilim ask I join Lucifer's fight

Seraphim swords clash with Powers of Hell
These soldiers of Heaven 'gainst those who one Fell

Gabriel weeps, He knows He has failed
Azazel laughs, His plans have prevailed

This battle is over, no more inner strife
To the legions of Samael I pledge mortal life




Author's Notes: Well, this one even I don't fully get. It's all over the place... As far as I can gather, it's a story about a new, young angel and his inner conflict about whether to serve Good or Evil. He eventually realises that Evil suits him best. I 'borrowed' the rhyming scheme from Frost's 'The Tuft of Flowers'.
