Black hair spills to the floor
Skin alabaster, lips azure
A raven pecks at the windowpane
I weep, tear my clothes
Doctors shake their heads
Oh, my Lenore
You promised us evermore
I lie beside her
Hot breath against cold cheek
Take her icy hand from her breast
Feel her fingers twitch, then grip mine
Happy Halloween, everyone! Hope you all get more treats than tricks. Here’s one treat for you. Yup, one gratuitous cat photo coming up!
