Some Poetry from

Small Title

 

Temptress

Daintily, she spreads her mantle
And with a gossamer caress
Its cold dark embrace enfolds all
The shadows dance and play
Rejoicing in their new found freedom
The temperature falls
And icy fingers of fear
Creep into every soul

Pyrite light shines
Halos of haze form illusory oases
Prison cells with opaque walls
She laughs, drawing forth hidden desires
Forbidden dreams
Unfettered lust, unleashed demons
All at her beck and call
Fear her, embrace her

She is untouchable
She is your salvation and your doom
She hides your shame
and covers your fall
She is night
