Rescue me

This longing from within
I see it rising

It’s a devil in disguise
It’s a creature from the deep sea
its eyes are blind
yet it can see
it sees me

It has a beak
sharp teeth
sharp claws
a pointy tail

Its scales are orange and silver
and she slides
she slithers

She turns out to be a mother
a whore, a wife
bearing children from many fathers
giving birth, giving life

Life unwanted
they didn’t want to be born this way
by copied sin
fading with every copy

She’s a devil in disguise
beguiling
her vile breath
poisonous
when it reaches the air

She’s a creature from the deep sea
without ears
deaf
yet she hears me
she hears me call

Rescue me

    The change where the ‘monster’ is then female changes the character of the monster considerably. I like how you achieved 2 phases here. PS excuse sleepy comment as just at Sydney off to Hong Kong. G;)
