Need is moon

My need is moon: the way it silvers nape,
your neck with veins pulsating, waiting
as the paleness of my hands, as snakes
are reaching; I’m a shadow; more a shape
of want. Your breath still shallow; longing
craving for a sacrifice: for me your warmth;
You sigh: “In darkness is my true belonging”.
You tense as from behind I wrap my marble arms
around you waist, and trace your earlobes
with my icy tongue. “I’m ready to be dead
alive with you”, you meet me with your lips
as midnight tolls, with moon you flower spread
and when you climax from you neck I sip
my needs from you, and as your heartbeat cease
your eyes turn green; your smile is pale, diseased.

Today I host at toads, and I want you to write about the creatures of the night. Not the nice and cute of trick or treat, but the true horrors and lust that undeads bring.
I will also link up to Poetry Pantry tomorrow morning.

  1. Wow!! This here literally gives me the chills “I’m ready to be dead
    alive with you”, you meet me with your lips as midnight tolls” a most dark and delicious write! 💜

  2. The pacing in this just has a such a marvelously breathless feeling that intensifies the already intensely passionate imagery.

  3. as your heartbeat cease
    your eyes turn green; your smile is pale, diseased.

    It has that kind of effect and impact for creatures of the night. It gives the creeps!

  4. Wow! is correct – that simple trite, fulsome, absolutely on-target exclamation… both chilling, and sensual… brilliant piece! (as usual)

  5. The icy touch is creepy yet sensuous at the same time. I think Victorian Gothic was very much inspired by sexual repression – the dark side is tantalizing.

  6. Bjorn, wow! Love how you used moon as an adjective, or is it adverb….it is beautifully, memorably penned. Good thing I’m not going to sleep any time soon…

  7. You did well with your prompt, Bjorn. Thank you it was a fun write. You followed the ritual well also, giving us insight with your amplification along the way. In the end, I’d rather not have been seeing her die.

  8. All the vampire books and movies I have ever read…
    well most anyway that end in dread –
    Neatly sewn on the page with ink thread!

    I just watched a rerun of a Star-Trek the Next Generation episode where (without teeth) an entity turned the eyes of women he used green!

    Thanks for stopping by my brief ‘boo’.

    It’s been a while – I see you have published – continued success with that! I haven’t quite gotten that far. Maybe next year. 🙂

I love your feedback
