Seduction of the Midnight Opera

by NyellMoonlight   Apr 1, 2008


Nocturnal whispers reveal secrets
plunged in liquor of moonlit alchemy;
startling sensations lacerate sighs
of branches colored like diamond dew.

Angels sneak through icebound towers,
succumbing to artificial obscurity
sprinkled over forlorn, ragged senses
reborn within blossoming thunderstorms.

Legacy of enchantment embed into sights
smeared across the rubies of ardent pupils,
metaphorically bloodthirsty, craving
for hesitating hands to heal the thoughts.

Sinful ebony caresses intricate fantasies
framing fragrance of glassy flowers,
tempting ghoulish pleasures within
created to crawl through wax fields.

Frigidity entwines with arcane desires
crucified inside of silent crusades;
plunged in liquor of moonlit alchemy
nocturnal whispers reveal secrets.

    You have a way with words, that I give you. This poem, to a limit, reminded me of 7th grade when we'd read those poems the teacher printed offline, and try to understand them - and usually wouldn't get them. Which is not a bad thing, at all. It leaves the mind able to wander and work the poem out by itself. Even if you're going for a direct meaning, you don't always get it. But, I think you did wonderful with this poem. I understood it, but at the same time I didn't. Which is what I like about poems - I can kind of get my own meaning to them. Kind of like life? Lol.

    Great job, darling.

    The title in this was great and once again I love you wide use of vocabulary. I still find that I am in awe at your talent for being so descriptive.

    Each verse draws the reader in even deeper than the one before. It allows their imagination to take over as though they can see what is actually taking place as the words unfold.

    Just amazing

    Brilliant usage of words. I enjoyed every part of this poem. Your imagination is just indescribable. The way you put together words is amazingly creative. I can just be lost in the way you express your emotions here. You never fail to amaze me with your talent.

    crucified inside of silent crusades;

    nocturnal whispers reveal secrets.

    Beautiful. (:

    First off.. Let me apologize for it taking me so long. lol.. I had soo much to do. But HEY i'm doing it now :P

    now the poem..

    Your vocabulary simply BLEW ME AWAY. The title was interesting and caught my attention before I actually got into the poem, and once i did .. it was really good. I am a big fan of rhyming... but you pulled it off great without. I'm almost on the brink of: it has to rhyme to be a poem (even though I have a couple un-rhymers) Thats how much I love rhyming. But the way you set everything up, the whole image behind it, made it turn out as a great piece. This is my favorite part:

    Legacy of enchantment embed into sights
    smeared across the rubies of ardent pupils,
    metaphorically bloodthirsty, craving
    for hesitating hands to heal the thoughts.

    Excellent Job
