A Sinister Lullaby

By: Adam M. Snow

 

A melody flowing caressing the nightly air,

its soothing sound echoes a flair.

It sprung from the lips of a maiden aloft;

the angelic song, sung ever so soft.

This peaceful lullaby dares be at ease;

it is peace and harmony, this song decrees.

I dare not wake from this melody slumber,

this rest entrance me to encumber.

The melody continues on through the night,

caressing the angelic lunar light.

It steals my breath, my soul, my heart;

it speaks a lore to impart.

It torments my dream, my self, my being;

to hear this earthly angel singing.

I cannot wake from this melody trance;

darkness consumes as the angel dance.

I cannot wake from this grimful hollow;

an ethereal silence, who fears to follow.

All life trembles at her voice,

leaving all to surrender, not by choice.

Her melody sways forevermore,

stealing the souls for many yore.

Why thank you
Quite a muse! Not one to follow too closely. I can't help wondering what benefits she might confer though - and what the price might be! Enjoyed the read.

I agree with the person below who thought that it was like when a song permeates your dreams. I couldn't agree more. Wonderful.

the writing sounds like 19th century poetry and on its subject. it has great imagery. beautifully written.

Humm.. Perhaps you left your I pod on. J/ k .. Being seduced by a magical voice could make sleeping enjoyable. The only time this happened to me was from a Blue October song called Hate Me.. Tormented my dreams for days..
