Re: FINALE - Round 3

FREE VERSE - SEDUCTION

"Invalid Item

A single bead of sweat
travels down -
enticing.

My tongue dips out,
poised to intercept.
Longing for a single taste,
my mouth waters.

Straining against the urge to touch,
hands clasp the counter.

Unable to hold back,
I take you in my mouth and suck your sweet essence dry.
Your creamy goodness slides down my throat,
and I sigh in satisfaction.

Ben and Jerry -
you complete me.


PANTOUM - Death Personified

"Invalid Item

You soar overhead, stalking your prey.
Swooping down when least expected
like a hawk, carrying loved ones away.
Death is natural and not directed.

Swooping down when least expected;
I hide to avoid your gaze.
Death is natural and not directed.
Time is wasted counting days.

I hide to avoid your gaze,
not yet ready for my fate.
Time is wasted counting days,
but when I realize, it's too late.

Not yet ready for my fate;
I'm living with caution, afraid to die.
But when I realize, it's too late.
Death is one thing I can't defy.

I'm living with caution, afraid to die.
Like a hawk, carrying loved ones away,
Death is one thing I can't defy.
You soar overhead, stalking your prey.
