In the Shadows

I am this night’s shadows
rustling beneath the eaves,
stillness and silence, a sentinel,
I watch for you, for what I need.

Desire burns through these thin veins,
liquid memories of what I anticipate,
taste and touch cry out to me,
and aching with patience, I wait.

Then you come soft and languid,
living fleshed and curved and perfect.

My body ignites at the scent of you,
though no flush passes over pale skin,
ears pricked by your each falling footstep,
muscles tensed for the end to begin.

A deeper dark you ease your way into,
unthinking brush a tress back from your eyes,
and with no hesitation passing through,
blindly set your path, accept my lies.

Swiftly I descend into your capture,
hold you close with all my strength’s affect;
at last these verging senses reach their rapture,
and thrust their passion deep into your neck.

And now your thoughts, like skin, are tearing fast,
your terror beats, for me, a lovely tune;
I savor every note, for it won’t last,
the slowing rhythm of a life consumed.

Engorged, I slack and soften my embrace,
and gently pull my head back as I’m filled;
if I had love, I’d thank you for your gift,
though it’s hardly a flicker against this eternal chill.

Amazing Pumpkin Carvings

I’m a day late on Halloween, but I came across this great post today, and it was too good not to share.  I couldn’t re-blog, since it’s not working on WordPress right now, so you’ll have to click the link to see the pictures, but it’s totally worth it.

The blogger is Chicquero, and she’s posted pictures of pumpkins masterfully carved by artist Ray Villafane (click here for a link to his site – you won’t believe what he’s done with sand!).

Anyway, take a look at Chicquero’s post on The ART of pumpkin carving.


(I’ve still got “Click it…click it please” in my head.  By the way, that is from the Steve Martin movie Mixed Nuts. Sorry, averageinsuburbia, I forgot to go back and give the answer last time.)
