The shades of pain await
For the last of her breath.
They hunger for her flesh -
Longing at last for her death.
The grin of their evil
Has flushed over their lips
And they wait in amusement until
Into the darkness she slips.
Oh how they've stroked her
And wished for her there.
They've been infatuated with
The sweet scent of her hair.
Her life is their plaything;
They toy with her intentions.
They tie up her mind
With desire of abstentions.
They crawl to the most silent
Places of her curiosity
To sew their darkend thread
Of impiety and animosity.
A more worthy partner?
They will find none
Because she is the sinner-
The impenitent one.

Lovely darkness, I know where the sentiment comes from. I can really feel this one!!

Patience is a virtue, but virtue has never been one of my redeeming qualities.

"Would I were free from this restraint, or else had hope to win her!.....Would she could make of me a saint or I of her a sinner!"
a pleasure to bring this piece of darkness back to the top

Thanks so much. I didn't get much commentary out of this one as I thought. THank you for reading, Elvira!

I believe this to be an exceptional work. The author of this poem is clearly gifted. Weaving words as delicately as a spider weaves her silken web. I look forward to many more.
