Sous la lune

Spread the love

skyrim_werewolf_wallpaper_by_shadow_chan15-d7c15f6

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.

  1. Bjorn Rudberg says:

    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.

  3. Women love bad boys, outlaws, & werewolves it seems. I guess the converse is true for the weaker sex, men. A fun romp; thanks.

  11. Truedessa says:

    I have to wonder about his intentions as the beast comes out under moonlight. You know what they say about the full moon it brings out the other side.

  17. kaykuala h says:

    His thoughts untamed rushed as though
    dreadful wind; whispering schemes into
    the darkness of the night.

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

      Highly appreciated, have a great week ahead.

  19. 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.

  21. lillian says:

    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!

  24. Michael says:

    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.
