' DARK SURRENDER


The night wind moans uneasy
As dying embers leap,
Somnolence enveloping
The chambers of the keep;

My soul in transit restless,
Sleep eludes me now -
A silent voice seducing me,
Cold breath upon my brow;

Danger creeps around me
On velvet paws of lust,
Longing to possess my soul,
Transform my flesh to dust;

Icey fingers stroke my flesh,
Ignite my wanton skin -
Frozen lips upon my neck
Now brand me from within;

Drink deep, sweet prince of darkness,
Alleviate my fear -
Satiate your hunger
My salvation drawing near;

Sup my mortal essence,
Justify the toll -
Ferry me on velvet wings
To the dark side of your soul;

Grant me immortality,
Extinguish now my light -
Shelter me in darkness..................
Commend me to your night.


HAPPY HALLOWEEN! ! ! ! ! !

    Darkness pervades your poem, and yet there is some immaculate beauty in it. Loved the flow, thanks for sharing, Linda.

    Ahh, I came across this one a week too late. Oh well, I still see remnants of Halloween around me, so it's better late than never. Great writing, Linda! (Report) Reply

    This is exquisite. To some of us (both under and over the age of 40) this is more real
    than imaginary. Love this style and the bewitchment of the words. (smile) (Report) Reply

    When I read this on forum, I just had to come here and add it to 'my favorites' and vote it a 10, for I think it is a truly good piece of scary, bone-chilling fear! ! Well done! ! (Report) Reply

It is the hour when from the boughs

And gentle winds and waters near,
