WHERE DARKNESS SLEEPS

This was sparked while watching Queen of The Damned.
 
 
 
 
CONTAINED WITHIN
A SINGLE GLISTENING TEAR.
CRUSHED RED VELVET
SOFT, WARM, WET.
A HEAT TRANSFERRED BETWEEN BODIES
LIVING, BREATHING, DESIRE.
TOUCH THIS, TASTE THIS, FEEL THIS
DEVOUR EVERY PUSLING DROP.
WANTON DESPERATION
IN THE DESIRE TO FEEL ALIVE.
LEWD, LACIVIOUS,
EXTRAVAGANTLY RAW.
        IMMORTAL BEINGS
CONNECT TO THIS THREAD OF TIME.
THROUGH THE LIVING BLOOD
OF THE TENDERLY INNOCENT.
DRAWN INTO THE MYSTERY
DRAWN INTO THE WEB.
THE WIDOW’S LAIR
IS SAFE COMPARED TO THIS.
UNFETTERED FROM RESTRAINT
YET BOUND BY THIS NEED.
LAIN DOWN INTO THE PLACE
WHERE DARKNESS SLEEPS.

  4. This piece spoke to me of how horrible it is to crave but never truly have what you need. A dark place to be indeed.

  13. Dark is frightening, dangerous, undesirable, a threat to all and needing to be fought and destroyed. The problem is that it's also endlessly fascinating.
    We need dark to appreciate having light.
