Nocturnes ~ the Series

Chimera Poetry

Nocturnes ~

Nocturnes, Night Singers, sirens of the dark

The unwary snared in their fathomless gaze

Eyes of violet promising delight while relentless hunger seethes unseen


while their bewitchment sung

draws ever tighter the binding

The old order eroded with the runes of power

 Which held the singers in thrall

Lilith beckons now raven now jungle cat

a thing of sharp teeth and claw

Cruelty for hot bloods sake.



Nocturnes II

Nocturnes move amidst the night-time multitude

persistently unnoticed in the greying light

Masks fixed in place, smiles too

Hiding a glittering malevolence

the swirl of smoke blown back into the bottle

and held with incantations old as iron

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
