Re: FINALE - Round 3

Free verse (15 lines) - Death

"Invalid Item

I am a hollow man with nothing inside
except the ache of loneliness.
I reach for the soul of a woman,
desiring her warmth in these lifeless fingers.
I know she loathes my time-scourged visage,
but still I plead for her company.
She shivers in fearful anticipation,
as I finally take her to be my bride.
In our home of darkness and solitude,
she withers in the arms of an impoverished existence.
Till again…I’m alone. Again…I feel empty.
Compelled to seek another,
I cast my shadow across a different future.
Fiercely she battles my advances,
but ultimately her fate lies in the hands of Death.


Pantoum (unrhymed) - Seduction

"Invalid Item

I sing of your foibles in lullabies,
Offering subtle temptations to consume.
Fantasies are never far from your mind
As I tease out secrets with gentle fingers.

Offering subtle temptations to consume,
I bring you a platter of your desires.
As I tease out secrets with gentle fingers--
Indulge … sample … experiment.

I bring you a platter of your desires,
Rich and warm as chocolate kisses.
Indulge … sample … experiment;
Breathe life into your dreams.

Rich and warm as chocolate kisses,
I add sweetness to your days,
Breathe life into your dreams.
In my arms, nothing is forbidden.

I add sweetness to your days,
Caressing with intimate knowledge.
In my arms, nothing is forbidden,
So drink fully of your desired wine.

Caressing with intimate knowledge
I am the seductress of your spirit,
So drink fully of your desired wine
When I flirt with your yearnings.

I am the seductress of your spirit;
I sing of your foibles in lullabies.
When I flirt with your yearnings,
Fantasies are never far from your mind.
