Illusion of night


The night’s brisk touch
caressed her pale skin
in hopes of seducing her
to join the loneliness
of the dark and frigid life he lived
his bony fingers ran lightly up her spine
sending chills throughout her
pulling her closer into his grasp
he charmed her with false promises
and gentle touches
that filled her aching need
for love and attention
she was naive to his grim intentions
she entwined her fingers with his
as he walked her into
the illusion of night
