Moonbeam wisps ignite—
tangled in loves silky spin,
dizzy with delight
inebriated by her visage,
threaded in loves web,
soaring to forbidden heights
too daft to see,
matted in a net of woven string,
tighter still her knots they twist,
thrashing in vanities mirrored burlesque.
enthralled—I am prey
motionless as she consumes
in a venomous cocoon,
hungry for you.

I just want to say a massive thank you, to Matt from This Mortal Flesh. This collaboration was a wonderful challenge, as our writing styles are quite different. Quoting Matt, ‘West meets East.’
I’m a bit of a romantic but I love Matt’s darker writing style. It was great to see where our poetry lead. It was such an honour to work with such a talented Poet. If you are not already following This Mortal Flesh, please head over and check out his incredible writings.
