This was a test for myself and ended up being picked up for publication.
Shadows encompass the trenches of her nest,
as the blanket stretches across the evening sky.
The porcelain figure illuminates from within.

Obsidian eyes eager to allure;
crimson lips parted in anticipation.

Her nefarious ways have ruled the blackness
for a time boundless and obscure.
She leaves the crypt searching to fill the infernal hunger.

Spectral movements entertain the landscape;
fog shifts in the pursuit.

Aroma envelopes her, controls her, leads her
to the heedless figure wandering nearby.
She ponders the route he will take.

Sullen cries escape and call for him;
illusory distress she ensues.

His rush to assist is swift and strong.
As his hand outstretches for her safety,
her voracity fulfills the insidious craving.

Momentary anguish follows her retreat.
Brushing it aside she knows,
tomorrow’s longing will always remain.
