And he rose like a dream shrouded in obsidian
“Blood the sky!” – bewailed ravenous eyes ..
‘Upon a world solemn; and the dead betrothed
Where lust a river dark, my ache roams wild
Many moons spent wither’d in winds dreary;
naked in breath of whispered-flame & wine
O’ darkly I hear thee my beloved enchant,
thy seraphic-tongue dripping in Night’s mist
Thou art the evening tide flooding my soul,
— gossamer-wings of a gothic serenade ...
Seek you mine lips in a song of shadows
For in immortal sin we shall not wane
Unto a sea of crimson, my love hath assail’d
From Earth to tomb, I am death & hallowed

Very captivating! An amazing portal that invites you in, and then wraps you in its story, for want of sharing to maybe take away just a little of the loneliness of it all !  Beautiful!

This is written in a beautiful dialect - the words and expressions hint the personality that was intended. It was more of a description than a tale which is fine by me; it makes the work precise and likable. Over all a fine work :)

Arthur, you had to do it! Another girl, another heartbeat raising poem...

Although I'll admit this was sexy. God damn it was sexy. The nosferatu angle was genuinely heartfelt - among other places which felt something (laughing). Well done. Honestly. The theme, the concrete ambience, the imagery, and the balanced lingua made this another well written Arthur Crow masterpiece.

I blame it all on the hypnotic pull of nosferatu ;)
