A Poem for Poets United – ‘Red’

This poem for ‘Poets United’ was based on the prompt ‘Red’. Again I’ve been playing with the Ethereee form – this one is an etheree followed by an inverted etheree.

Dark
red lips
whisper my
name, I tremble
as she moves closer
her hand gently touches mine
long, soft, delicate fingers
her piercing stare draws me closer
like a moth to a flickering flame
I know I should turn and run, but I can’t
those sweet, seductive lips gently touch me
my whole body shivers with delight
I try to reach out and touch her
something is stopping me
I’m at her mercy,
smiling sweetly
she sucks my
life blood
dry.

    1. Thanks for your comments.
      I’d like to say that I intended that the shape should be like a vampire fang but until you pointed it out I hadn’t noticed.

I look forward to reading your comments
