    Legend says that you must invite them in
    But, I should have known better.
    It was a simple mistake,
    Falling for the illusion of real frosting fake
    Opening up,
    To let her sup with me.
    Taste my thoughts,
    Define my soul so intimately
    While all the while ignorantly
    Dancing with she the devil,
    Her stripping fingers, getting into, at me
    To the past musical beat
    Of a count's forbidden dance
    My mind too blind,
    Tangled in trances of romance.
    Wherein we'd dance
    Tango and Marengo into the swell of night
    The way very black darkness swings sweet moonlight
    Yet apparently, it wasn't clear to me
    Because I thought she should've known
    Feelings like vines were grown
    And I might be turned,
    Into a lover
    Whose heart branded and burned
    To one day return,
    Ask for her blood.
    How I never knew,
    She'd only disappoint.
    Flee; draw back into the shadows like the fiend filled
    Disappearing after every drop of me was gone.
    And I alone,
    Was convulsing on the floor
    Bleeding on her behalf,
    Thirsting for something,
    I couldn't have.

    Great word play in this, it's that risk we take never knowing how it will really turn out. Flow on poet.

    I hope this experience does not taint your view of all women! We all aren't 'she-devils'! LOL Much love for this flow. It was very heartfelt.

    The temptress lurks, beware.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this poet.
