The Bite

The moon bathes you in a glow Eyes flutter and breathing slows Flowers shudder in a vase Thin shadows caress your face A silhouette looms in the door You wonder what it’s looking for Fog presses against the window panes You blood thunders in your veins The shadow looms with outstretched hands Time slips away like sand

The Full Moon Will Rise

The sun slinks low to hide I breathe in the cold dry air The full moon will rise My search will take me far and wide Carrying a silver prayer The sun slinks low to hide The dimming sky offers a disguise Among the trees tall and bare The full moon will rise Stars will be my only guide Leading me to his lonely lair The sun slinks low to hide I’ll wait for the whites in his eyes My silver flash tearing through course hair The full moon will rise The woods will echo with cries From the beast I must ensnare The sun has slunk low to hide The full moon will rise

The Birds Are Still

A cry rings out, loud and shrill Rustling, was that feathers? Shadows shift, the birds are still Bitter taste, another pill Thin assurance, it’s just the weather A cry rings out, loud and shrill Claws scratching, on my window sill Barricade the door, for good measure Shadows shift, the birds are still Threading sheets through bars gives me a thrill The doorknob rattles, expressing it’s displeasure A cry rings out, loud and shrill They want to pick me apart, against my will Bang bang, the door cracks under pressure Shadows shift, the birds are still Muscles tense, poised to kill Beak and skin clash together A cry rings out, loud and shrill Shadows shift, the birds are still ******** Just added this villanelle to Dverse’s open link night!

Villanelle 3

You’re the light, you’re the light I am, I am, a little wicked You’re the night, you’re the night   Take me past our satellites Just like you said, just like you said You’re the light, you’re the light   Black out the world, I will not fight Hands red, hands red You’re the night, you’re the night   On the edge of the highest heights The fire, the fire, you have fed You’re the light, you’re the light   You make things hazy, you make things right It goes to my head, it goes to my head You’re the night, you’re the night   Together we can burn bright Just like you said, just like you said You’re the light, you’re the light You’re the night, you’re the night   ********** Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt was a tall order: write a villanelle using words from an existing piece of work, incorporating two opposing phrases. I was excited for the challenge though, I love writing villanelles, and was already looking for inspiration to write one for Dverse’s …

I made a love potion for you to drink It’s a lovely tea, almond sweet Stir stir, clink clink   It’s the color of love, a vibrant pink Made just for you, no easy feat I made a love potion for you to drink   It should work quickly, I think Your cheeks will flush from the heat Stir stir, clink clink   As you sip your inhibitions will shrink You’ll feel a tingling in your feet I make a love potion for you to drink   You’ll shiver and vomit in my sink You’ll twitch until your heart no longer beats Stir stir, clink clink   The world will turn as black as ink I’ll bury you wrapped in a white sheet I made a love potion for you to drink Stir stir, clink clink
