Devotion downed like a fifth of vodka

Immersed in warm soot gothic cathedral stone divinity & 1920’s shadow horror movie falling promiscuity ;
she sang a tender tyrants song and swept in dawns dancing graceful crusted bedtime eyes.

Love,
this feeling lingers as a melody raging under twilights twiddling thumbs;
tongues touch scarred skin.

loyalty,
enthused for a pouring midnight passion person to perpetuate emotional stimulation through the storms stumbling vibrato trills :

my fantasy,
insanity,
my Stradivarius.

shrouded reverie haunts me
amidst perverse disillusion.

sweet ivory angels chests

were a dense winter water gardens courtyard breeze,
I watched and adored from purple pulsing veined hearts not brave enough to beat
while leaves blew away once more.

the dying continued to die,
the living continued to live
and the condemned still searched for their Alraune.

The basis of the story of Alraune dates to the Middle Ages in Germany. The humanoid-shaped Mandrake root or Mandragora officinarum was widely believed to be produced by the semen of hanged men under the gallows. Alchemists claimed that hanged men ejaculated after their necks were broken and that the earth absorbed their final “strengths”. In some versions, it is blood instead of semen. The root itself was used in love philtres and potions while its fruit was supposed to facilitate pregnancy. Witches who “made love” to the Mandrake root were said to produce offspring that had no feelings of real love and had no soul.
