THE JEZEBEL

Loving you is like falling
into a dangerous snare
I'm now under siege of
the mistress of darkness
embodied with wanton
destruction of destinies
the fangs of your ill love
has left the sun a hapless
victim in a broad daylight

Seems like an unsuccessful relationship here.
I googled for the name at the title , and had to read abt it as I had no previous knowledge of her. So thank you for giving us a bonus here.

Just one tiny suggestion if I may
The line
[a] mistress of darkness
I thought would read better if we use [the] as we are aware of who we are talking about.
Other than that I appreciate your wide knowledge and sharing it with us sir.

Matters a lot here. Heart felt thanks for your observation and correction. Thanks a bunch Rula!

Jezebel was a prostitute, a killer! A woman of fierce energy. She story is found in Holy bible, the book of 1Kings and 2Kings. If you're a Christian, it would be easier for you to search. A very dangerous woman. But I used the title as analogy.

instead of the word (ill) I would use (afflicted, ailing or diseased) as the word ill seems clipped and abrupt. I hope I have helped you. I very much like your poem. those are the only suggestions that I have. the rest is great.

The lasting effects of toxic love- I don't think we ever fully recover- simple but powerful write!
