Delicate disturbance in the night,
Enough to make you never forget,
Gentle rattling at the window,
An airy chant from under the door,
Faceless voice,
Craving a taste of love,
Like the heart of the night
She is condemned to darkness,
Feel her creep.

Unable to move
And straining to speak,
I wake.

    Very well written Zoe, with haunting imagery in the first stanza that really gets nailed in the second. Love, Nigel

    Interesting perspective in this poem. The title is fitting. Keep on writing. Karen

    Lotsa cool assonance here! 'faceless...devastating...craving...taste/ feel...creep.' ...and the 'd' alliterations throughout the first verse. Excellent piece! Keith
