Dr Tapan Kumar Pradhan

Rookie (October 22,1972 / Bhubaneswar, Odisha, India)

Enchantress


Like a princess she comes
at the appointed hour
floating like a shadow
through the stillness of night

Her chalk white body
glimmers in the dark
as she flings open her robes
with a brush of her hands

And crouches by my side
and takes me to her lap
and presses my lips
to her pointed white breasts

And lets out a streak
of lightening white milk,
flooding my lungs
with hurricanes of ice

Then disrobes me quietly
like a baby in her lap
and dips her fangs
in my hairless loins


and sucks my blood
night after night.

    Sounds like a tale of an enchantress, seductress or a midnight vampire.
    A very seductive and hauntingly intense poem. An imaginative write. (Report) Reply

    Erotic poem without using any erotic word. From the first line till the end the suspense is sustained. A haunting poem. The flow and diction is perfect. Dr Pradhan make poetry look so easy! (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
