                                   Tethered to sacred mist,  
                         Her ethereal essence harbors no bliss
                          Dwelling among faded tombstones,
                             Scavenging the remnants of ashen bones.

No rest for the wicked they say,
She would sooner just melt away
Like spring caressing the snow,
Mana for tormented souls below.

                                 Encased within self-inflicted prison,
                                A scorned specter summoned, has risen.
                          Bound, she exists between two vales,
                                Whilst the harvest moon, ebbing pales.

To listen within the still somber scene,
You may hear echoes of a banshee scream.
To defy her mesmerizing siren refrain,
 Only perpetuates the agonizing pain.

                              She croons so seductive, a lover's serenade,
                             So devious in her bedeviled masquerade.
                            Only those who love deeply can turn away,
                           A heart claimed, immune by her sway.

Haunted by love lost disheartening illusion,
Wandering unrepentant in tormenting seclusion
Condemned evermore to seek her lover true,
Her burning desire to bid thee adieu.

    Really amazing poem! I loved it! Your words flow nicely with your rhymes. I rhyme many of my poems in the same way. And, I have a darker side to my poetry, as well. You might enjoy my poem titled, "The Castle". Please, read it sometime.

    Always like the Banshee folklore of times gone by;When the thrill was in the telling of a good story. Thank You Lisa.
