Nightmare Flower – Christine E. Ray

photo-1439122955805-cbac26b73f3b.jpg

you declared that you
loved me
more than life itself
to any
and all
that would listen
if only
you had valued life
a bit more highly
than the darkness
you received your
first kiss
from Lady Midnight
herself
on moonless eves
the imprint of
her pale, frosty lips
still glitters
on your neck
as we lay black narcissi
blood red roses
before our empty crypts
I remember when hearts
and hope
still beat in our chests
before we were mere memory
and shadow

  1. Love this! It’s really fun to see how you are inspired by the prompts! I really love the last few lines “I remember when hearts
    and hope
    still beat in our chests
    before we were mere memory
    and shadow”
    so good 🙂
