Poetic Series: Princess of Darkness | Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting
by Luis S. González-Acevedo
Princess of Darkness
Sway in my presence
through darkened gloom.
Distress any sense
left in my weakened mind
that your porcelain skin has not yet doomed.
Shadow of black lipstick… my soul does bind.
Your eyes… deliciously tar-lined.
Surround my trembling heart with markers
and frame it with shadowed borders.
Your pale of skin and soulful darkness
radiate nobility in your depravity.
Princess of Darkness with voracity…
arouse my spirit with starkness
drape me with jet-black hair
my soul at dusk ensnare
entrap me in your nightmare’s lair.
–Chronicle of a Beautiful Haunting will be featured in my novel stories of a beautiful haunting… surreal in April of 2021–
