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.

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

power-obsession, by Toni L.A. Cross 1/10/10

power
evil temptation
 
seductive
gripping sensation
 
grasping
clutching creation
 
obsession
eternal damnation
 
control
mindless possession
 
drunken
heedless confession
 
power
deadly elation
