in veils of black crepe silk she rose

each night to tempt my tongue

a phoenix in mourning


at the window a whisper

a gap so small

the nursery lies empty

Great imagery as always Stu.

I re-watched "The woman in black" last week, this piece had me thinking of it.

I like the words "a gap so small" as if to suggest how fragile the balance is between surrendering to temptation and not, it doesn't take much to break a will sometimes.
