Dark Lover

by Sparrowgael

Age Group: Adult

Whos there? she calls and lifts her head

from her softly pillowed bed;

peering through the inky gloom

as shadows dance about the room.

Whos there? again the plaintive cry

escapes her as a mournful sigh

that seems to linger on her lips

like velvet coated fingertips.

A curtain billows with a breeze

and then her blood begins to freeze

as movement by the dim hearthstone

reveals that she is not alone.

Whos there? she once again inquires

as in the light of dying fires

a cowled head, a heavy cloak

takes form as if from mist or smoke.

Ah, its you, it's in her voice;

she knows her mind, she's made her choice.

Her frail heart begins to race;

she lifts her arms as to embrace

the figure that comes near her bed

then slips the hood back from his head;

so close that she can feel his breath

she stares into the face of Death.

His countenance a stark relief

of passion, hunger, joy and grief

and burning eyes and sallow skin

inviting her to let him in.

His bone white fingers soft caress

of wrinkled throat and withered breast

cause passions long asleep to rise;

she gazes into coal black eyes

that seem to drink her very soul

and harvest her now that shes old.

She laughs and tosses back her head,

long white hair spilling across her bed,

and feels his mouth upon her flesh

as he begins to swiftly thresh

essence from sinew, spirit from bone,

He takes her love and gives his own.

Mouth on mouth and skin on skin,

in passions frenzy he breathes her in.

And when he lays her down again

On soft and silken counterpane

with no redeeming spark of life

hes taken her to be his wife

who stands beside her own deathbed

and gazes at her face now dead.

Her spiritual raiment thus bestowed

of golden hair and youthful glow;

sheltered from all earthly harm

as he enfolds her in his arms.

Then on his great pale horse they ride

and journey to the other side.
