Sous la lune

Spread the love

In the fashion of one who weaves but lies;
he stared into the mournful wonder of her
eyes. She kissed his lips with sweet delight
unaware of shift in his veins. He shudders
while watching the moon arise.

She sighed as she ran her hands through
the luminescent fields ‘neath moonlight.
His thoughts untamed rushed as though
dreadful wind; whispering schemes into
the darkness of the night.

Maiming the wrinkled silk and lace;
His paws perturbed with blood irate.

    Oh I can almost feel a little bit of sinister touch… maybe that moon is also that of blood… reminds me of Sting Moon over Bourbon Street.

    Chilling how each is in a completely different state of mind. Agree, we must be very careful the lovers we let into our lives. Well done!

    Seems to be unwittingly caught together with someone with bad intentions. Men come cloaked in many pretenses!

    Love the contrast between the rough violence of his touch and the softness of the silk. And the fact that by the end she pretty much disappears, leaving only wrinkled fabric behind, gives the poem a perfect touch, it speaks clearly of what happens in trouble relationships.

    Niiiiiiiiiiiicccccccccce! You’ve got a wonderful mini gothic tale, enhanced by the musicality of your style.

    By the light of the moon…..not a fairy tale with happiness or gossamer wings here — but untamed thoughts and claws in the night. Sinister — a great read!

    Hi Sanaa, happy weekend to you.
    There is always something on the one hand fascinating about moonlight and then again something sinister. The two seem to go hand in hand don’t they.

    • Sanaa says:

      Highly appreciated, have a great week ahead.

      PS: Indeed, and we both wrote on the same lines 😀

    Let’s hope she can tame the beast in him and lets him go out to get his drink of blood elsewhere tonight or even find a victim herself for him.
