Fatal Attraction – Writing 201: Poetry (Day 10 – Pleasure, Sonnet, Apostrophe)

vampire diaries 015

In the spirit of Halloween, my love for Vampire Diaries, and because this is the last assignment; I decided to spice things up a bit!  Enjoy!  🙂

Fatal Attraction

Darkness surrounded her cold dead soul
Entranced by her beauty he lost all control
With unabated lust he became her pawn
Never knowing that he would be dead before dawn
Ravenous passion heightened the pleasure
He had been marked by a poisonous treasure
She was pure perfection offering toxic affection
A snake in disguise circling her prize
Falling under her charm he was oblivious of harm
Cursed by her pleasurable yet fatal infection
He lost all distinct and intelligible direction
Before he could even come to his senses
He was paralyzed and left without any defenses
What she took was divine like a sweet red wine

  21. Thank you Dorinda, this class was a lot of fun. 🙂 I’m not sad because there is another class starting November 2nd and I am also doing Nanowrimo next month, so I will be busy enough with all of that!

  22. Wow, Michelle. You are showing us the multi-faceted writer with her feet not too buried in the dirt! This piece was completely unexpected but honestly compelling.

  23. I feel that I am a very versatile writer. I just don’t show it much on WordPress. I loved this short writing course because it gave me a chance to write about different topics. Hope your weekend is going well!

  24. That’s so awesome that you’re doing NaNoWriMo neext month!! That will keep you more than busy enough, but you CAN and WILL do it.:) Will this be your first year? I did Camp NaNo this past July and loved it.

  25. Yes, first year! I need encouragement to do it though. I pray that the inspiration flows and that I will have the energy to keep up with everything. What was Camp NaNo like?

  26. Yes, thank you. Tom was able to be up part of the day yesterday and we even went out for a bite to eat. How wonderful to sit across from the table and share a meal with the man I love and have quiet conversation. So thankful God was with us as we sat and watched the college kids around us and felt calm in our world and the grace He blessed us with.
    I believe I saw an e-mail in the in-basket. I’ve concentrated 3 days on cleaning up the blog. I’m trying to find my followers that WP took out of my reader – so far I’ve located 65.
    I hope to get back to e-mail tomorrow.
    And, you are a versatile writer and your talent shines through.

  27. So glad you had that time with Tom, I feel as though I take for granted my time with my husband when I hear your stories about you and Tom. Something I need to improve upon. I keep hearing all of these horrible stories about WP messing up everyone’s blogs and rumors of WP shutting down completely. I haven’t asked anyone about it yet. Do you know what’s going on? I feel I am out of the loop or maybe just hearing things that aren’t true. I haven’t had any problems that I know of yet. Hopefully it stays that way!

  28. I haven’t heard anything about WP shutting down. I have problems with those I follow disappearing from my reader list so I have to recreate my own list and here and there I have my own problems but I blame them on not being tech savoy.
    I have the free version of WP and my guess is that a lot of others do as well. WP is probably trying to be profitable and I see the day coming when everyone will have to pay. If WP disappeared, I would definitely be cut off from the world in so many ways. I pray the powers that be find a way to keep it going.
    Yes, every moment is so important that we spend with those we love. It is so true, we never know when it might be our last. Tom has slept all day today, he’s only been awake one brief moment. I would go outside and work in the garden but need to listen for his breathing. I thank God, Tom is in my life today and Miss Priss is cuddled up next to him. She’ll bark the instant anything isn’t right.

  29. Ok, well I feel relieved that you haven’t heard anything about this. Probably just a rumor to get everyone flustered. The only thing I pay for is the private domain and I’m sure I’ll have to pay soon enough when I go over my data limit. Does Tom normally sleep all day, or is he just worn out from yesterday? It’s a good thing that you have a dog that will watch over him and alert you.

  30. Please know you will have my undying support and encouragement all month long! Camp is basically is the same as the big November event, only you’re free to make your own word count goals (I set mine for 30k) and you can work on whatever projects you want, even previously started ones. There’s also a Camp in April, if you’re interested.:)

  31. Tom has required about 16 hrs of sleep out of 24 since 2007. Sometimes it’s a bit less but not often. Sometimes it’s more if we’ve had a lot of appointments.

  35. Our love for each other is unconditional. My wedding vows included, “In sickness and health,” and although I’d thought what that meant . . . I had no idea of what it would require.
