Belladonna

Submitted by Spencer DiSparti.

She comes to me with hunger
In her eyes. A temptress of the night!
A succubus, she preys upon my mind.
The taste of seduction dancing on her tongue…

My heart quickens its pace to every sensual
Step she takes.  Her pale beauty luminous
In the astral moonlight.  Her lips quiver
In anticipation as she wraps her arms about my neck.
We entwine in a passionate embrace.
Her mouth the taste of deadly nightshade—
A black rose that withers my senses.

At last she pulls away, her image changes,
A shifting shadow.  The face of beauty
Now aged and weathered.

Her cracked lips curl into a mirthless grin—
A peal of laughter pierces the air
As the world sways beneath my feet
And my mind surrenders to oblivion.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.
