Masquerade

Masquerade

A Poem by Lexi Nicole
"

Lean in a little closer, love...

"

One, two, three
One, two, three

 

How beautiful your cursed soul is
Wrapped in a crimson gown
Take my hand and dance with me
Before the moon goes down

 

One, two, three
One, two, three

 

Take down your mask and let me see
The light trapped in your eyes
Lean in a little closer, love
And let me set it free

 

Beat-beat, beat-beat
Beat-beat, beat-beat

 

The steady rhythm of your heart
Is pounding through your chest
Lean in a little closer, love
Let me give it rest

 

Beat-beat-beat, beat-beat-beat
Beat-beat-beat, beat-beat-beat

 

Beads of sweat roll down your skin
I bow my head by yours
Don’t worry, love, I promise you
This won’t hurt a bit.

 

One, two, three
One, two, three
Beat-beat-beat, beat-beat-beat
One, two, Beat-beat
Halt.

Wow! This was really great. Fang-tastic! This was so creative with the idea of dance and the rhythm of the heart. No real crit. So much is implied in this poem but the action is so concrete. You showed a bunch of creative talent here. Can't wait to read more!

I love this! At first, it reminded me of Phantom of the Opera, just because it's a masquerade. Then your patterns of "one two three" and "beat beat" made me feel like I was at a ball, dancing to the beat. Of course I also realized by the end that it was about a vampire. This was beautiful, rhythmic although it didn't rhyme at most parts, gripping and dark. Haven't read anything like this in quite some time. Amazing writing and fantastic imagery. I wish I could go to a full out ball, how cool would that be? Anyways, I digress. Super amazing write! It goes to my favorites :)
