Seduction of the Night by Toni L.A. Cross

Sweet lover’s face
Forget his seduction harms
Drinking in this poisonous grace
Letting dark caresses fill this space
Suave night has charms
 
Sweet lover’s face
 
Enter in my breathing place
Tame these natural alarms
Drinking in this poisonous grace
Letting pleasure erase
Holding close with sultry arms
Sweet lover’s face
 
Speeding pulse in headlong race
Forget his seduction harms
Drinking in this poisonous grace
 
Fingers interlock and bodies interlace
Tame these natural alarms
Drinking in this poisonous grace
 
This poem is loosely based on the Villanelle Poetry Style. I took some liberties with adapting it, but for the most part, I followed the rules.

~~me and orion ~~ written by Toni L.A. Cross

harsh icy wind
freezing tear tracks
on my cheeks

the night is so clear
the stars are so bright
I’m dwarfed by the darkness

surrounded with pinpricks
my eyes are searching frantically
for something I know

then there shines orion
the hunter, the fighter
my comrade in arms

i look up, reminded
that i’m not alone
a survivor, a scrapper

a victor someday
i stand stout inside once more
and think of the One

who hung the great galaxies
and never forgets
even tiny me

terror, written by Toni L.A. Cross 1/27/10

black abyss of misery

falling into darkness

endless pits of infamy

lost in infinite deadness

silent screams of agony

never heard in deafening quiet

heartless bellows of cacophony

sound fighting against itself
