"Like all crazy people, I'm quick to dismiss any doubts about my sanity." -Odd Thomas

Here's the lamented lullaby,
Belladonna, Nightshade.
To sleep, to dream, the muted lie;
Moonbeams falter, light fades.

There's the cursed siren song,
Lotus Blossom, Wolfsbane.
To fall, to wail, the night is long,
Fleeting waves of blackened rain.

Walk the tides, my tender love,
Living forests, coral brine;
Whilst calling for, and dreaming of
The soul you've lost to the divine.

Most darling Bella, holds the Night,
Awakened by the dawning fright
Of Lotus blooms and Wolfish fiends;
Vicious, scarlet, harpy queen.

The author's comments:
It seems to me that some attractions can be fatal. Like a poison, those ensnared in the widow's web have no means of escape when tangled completely. This poem is a tribute to the regretful temptress, as she tries to warn her lover of his grievous mistake by becoming involved with her.
