Hellcat - Poem by Barry Middleton

the hellcat prowls the dark of night
to cast a spell

be warned she is a sorceress
you cannot quell

the mystery and allure of her
enchanting dance

may bind the soul forever in
a breathless trance

a metaphor of bondage holds
the will at bay

despite the loosened memory
of yesterday

nor may you heed the warning cry
of frail despair

the wail of one who almost broke
her evil snare

    Wow. Beautiful description of hellcat which is used as a metaphor for lust, I guess. Some really spell-binding imagery. (Report) Reply

    Glad you liked it. For me a hellcat is a woman with an agenda who uses her sexuality to get what she wants. Luckily all women are not like this.
