Devil's Gate

Folder: 
Devil's Gate

Beneath hell bridge
The tunnel draws you in
By catacomb echoes
To the woods amidst the howls
The stream flows to Belial's face
There, the doorway awaits...

Hooded shadows move in the darkness
Within the forest deep below
'Neath the moon, a silver rictus
Flames aflicker in their hands
The Bridge To Hell has brought you here...

By the gaze of The Demon
Incantations, glowing symbols
Black Altar set before The Gate
Trapezoid traced in the air
Magic thick withIn this place
Much too much for most to bear
She faints into the chair...

An iron gate between two torches
A pyramid points to Hell
The Consort & The Beast enthroned
Invoking energy, surrounding force
Moonchild come to be
A scarlet portal of the flesh
Scarlet Daemon Goddess, Lilith
The Daemonseed possessed...

The earth trembles, 'something' stirs within
By this Sorcery triumphant
The stone face seems to move in place
The Portal shifts & churns
Can you hear the breathing?
The Eye opens, The Gate parts
Black Shadow in the night...
Encircles, suspended 'time'
The air is heavy with evil sensation

"Something" came through...
Within Me, within you...

Bridge To Hell

Folder: 
Devil's Gate

On the dark horizon
At dusk the sun descends into The Abyss
Blackened with the flames of Hell
Satan spreads His wings of night
Coursing across the Black Earth
On road of triple six
Leads to a bridge between the worlds...

The Bridge To Hell is calling...

Grim Reaper is your guide
Voices on the wind
Calling your name into the fog
Breathe in The Demon's breath
Empowered or consumed...

The Bridge To Hell is calling...

Another sacrifice
Plunges into The Pit
Headlong into the black
Mesmerizing spectral lights
Casts a ghostly pallor
Compelling... impelling...
Now there's no turning back
Will you make it to The Other Side?

December 13, 1913
A monster was erected
With legs of iron and steel
Body of stone
Then the blood began to flow
In throes of lamentation
Broken flesh and bone
Taken by the land...

The Bridge To Hell...
It breathes...
The Bridge To Hell...
It feeds...

Who is that by the side of the road?
In Death's embrace?
Forever gone, but yet returned
Haunting The Night eternal
Where they met their fate
Did you see your face?
Down beneath the archways
The wilderness below
At Devil's Gate...

Author's Notes/Comments: 

The hauntingly beautiful bridge is infamous for a continuing series of suicides since its birth in 1913, but it was after this rite that numbers multiplied dramatically, as if the area was somehow more so drawing those so inclined, and perhaps not so much so, towards their doom. It has been postulated that these, along with the disappearances, may be "sacrifices" to feed the dark forces released on the day of the ritual.

It is said that the very archways of this veritable "Hell Bridge", particularly that framing Devil's Gate, may serve as an entryway for nefarious energies.

Dark Silence

Folder: 
Satanic Serenades

Listen to the wind
Feel the earth beneath you
Whispers in the air
Energy course up through your flesh
Deriving strength within, without
Entering your mind infernal
Gates of Hell open wide
Animated black flame

In the still, in the night
Ravens speak, then take flight
Feel the tone in your bones
Conjoined, what is, and is to be
Alive in all that is to see

Dark Silence, spreading forth
Ripples in the air
Meditate, materialize
The Daemon rises, conjured eyes
Perceive the path, The Will of Mine

Candle fire gently flickers
Incense taking shapes
Shades of brothers, sisters baneful
Appearing on the walls
To greet again in this darkened place

Words take form in reality
Whispers echo rumbling thunder
Desires come to be
By the Name, the Only One
Projection, reflection
Summoned unto Me
Kingdom Come, Kingdom Won
All is done and All is One

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A Satanic Meditation. Reflections upon prevailing hellemental conditions stimulating psychological sensations.

Dracmas

Folder: 
Seasons In Hell

Black flame swirls The Abyss within
Immortal turn, Might & Sin
Rebirthday, shedding skin
Embryonic Nucleus
Darkness Renascence

Concupiscent conception cast
Walpurgis winds course far and vast
Hellfire burns The Heart Invernal
Forge the key, synergy
Gates of Hell Natality

Constellation, 13th sign
Echoes essence of The Nine
Across The Ages through entwined
Concentrated Daemon Shrine

Pentagram embedded flesh
Devil's mark in blood & brain
Ascending shadows, wings & horns
Piercing talons with black thorns

Skies asunder, earthen thunder
Descending deep into The Pit
Immortal Evilution sewn
Timeless Beast, again reborn!

Potentiam omnipotens, Satanas incarnis
Alpha Draconis in terra ascendere!

Author's Notes/Comments: 

On this "Candlemas Evil", another materialization manifests to assert The Self as Daemon-God of One's subjective Universe. 'Dracmas' celebrates Draconian Nativity, utilizing metaphor, psychodramatic empowerment, & symbolic resonance.
