vanitas by ForgottenBee

with uncurled fingers, and outstretched arm,

thin skinned,

paper like,

wrapping around bones,

creaking, groaning,

in her frenzied palm.

the eerie temptress

comes to call,

with talons deep

sunk in them all.

green eyes a flash light strike,

to hypnotise,

disguise aesthetics,

as lured on promises the siren’s song

lulls through high pitched tones,

building images

that tantalise

enticing them to fantasise.

the eerie temptress

comes to call

with talons deep

sunk in them all.

in plain view under moon beams gaze,

the musty toadstool under foot,

the rising stench of stale waters living years,

and those that pass are unaware,

of how she further tightens her hold,

draining their life force in her skeletal grip,

as on her thick dripping sweet talk they sip.

the eerie temptress

comes to call,

with talons deep

sunk in them all.

hidden in trees on moss ridden stones

lurking deep the boggy mire,

her whispers beckon, slippery their sagacious prose

eagerly encompassing,

violently seducing,

with inveigle

into her deadly bosom plucked.

the eerie temptress

comes to call,

with talons deep

sunk in them all.

 –

devouring motive, impenetrable shield,

guzzling on the fresh

innocence of unspent days

freely,

easily,

she sucks the power of will,

until all that’s left are

egos driven to beguile.

the eerie temptress

comes to call,

with talons deep

sunk in them all.

instincts vigour propels veracious

words to warn,

as with nefarious strikes,

she cuts the ties of heart over mind

avaricious her motive.

so keep selfless, true,

the soul

then from the temptress’s icy

shackles you’ll fall.

  1. Hi Jamie, I don’t know what a poetry generator is, so no I didn’t. This poem was created all by me, but playing around with a different style, than some of my other poetry. As with art, poetry appeals to different people in different ways. Thanks for reading my blog.
