Premium Member NIGHT FALL

Night fell
And engulfed us all
In one fell swoop
Cold came and it was fall

Premium Member COUNT DRACULA

As midnight strikes
Count Dracula
Sweeps across the floor
His piercing onyx eyes
Locked on his prey
Executes with artful grace
His macabre danced seduction
In one fell swoop
Charming the panting victim
She offers it up
As he sinks his teeth
Into her porcelain neck
Syphoning her ruby essence

Was it the tanned cheeks
The sun bright eyes
The softly parted smiling lips
The careless stance
Of barelegged ease
Or was it just her blowing hair
That caught my eye
Made my heart dance
In quick unease
Who was this girl
To take my life
My soul
My wife
In one fell swoop
Of sweet perchance
So few
and many
From such a lucky day

In One Fell Swoop

Your words cut-  like a woodcutters axe
chopping me down,
blood spills onto the pine strewn floor.
Exhaling words. Spoken without thought,
or love, trapped in an unbreakable bubble
that floats around my head.
Purple memories emanate from the centre,
rippling into infinity, becoming distant…
lost to the edge of life.
I thought love would save me, but
it too floats away on a starlit stream.
