MAGPIE...Prompt #103



                                   A Grave at the Novodevichy Cemetery, Moscow
 

THIS PHOTO, AT Magpie Tales, something to think about.  Thanks, Tess!



GOTHIC ROMANCE

The ashen one is beckoning,
pushing his heart out,
buying my soul again,

he draws my heart in,
burgundy ice,
never melts.

At midnight a mirage of petals
lift,
crumple,
call,
summon,
blow a kiss,

lay bare a voluptuous pink,
pucker red like a clown's smile.
Fool me once more.

Rain recedes below the basin of earth.
Without light,
a worm tucks in.

DCW said...

This stirs something in me like leaves in a night breeze; I sense the motion but can't actually see it.

Kat Mortensen said...

I always feel so in sync with your poetry, Lyn. I love the "ashen one" and "buying my soul".

Then the "voluptuous pink" - so erotic!

Nice touch with the worm too.

Great!

Linda said...

Shadowy, ethereal images creep through the lines of this poem, then tuck into a worm hole at the end. I enjoyed the soft edges. Very expressive.... "draws my heart in."
Thank you for sharing, Lyn.

Lyn said...

dori said...

Creepy! There's always one or two stand out lines in your work, lines that grab the life outta ya...this piece is no exception. Dang! That's a creepy, seductive poem. Love it!

Tumblewords: said...

Love it. The fourth stanza is brilliant...

izzy said...

Interesting...the first two verses
almost stand alone.I like them.
I am not sure I get anything pink from this- Underneath a kiss-?
Anyway, your worm would be under the granite for sure-and maybe I am just in too literal a frame of mind! Thanks.

Lyn said...

Hi izzy-
I'm never literal..I sort of like things to whiz by, and sink or swim. Pink,(sure, a kiss??)just painting... earth, it's all earth around the slab...... all for effect or not. Love your comment...thanks!

Carrie Burtt said...
