Lure me in with silk and gold,
beaded velvet, satin threads
drawn across lips still red with wine.

Draw me down beneath the world
into some secret, wanton lair
while Carnival still beats within our veins.

Wall me up behind the dark
and leave me with my silver chains
to think on wiles byzantine,

Montresor's bleak design.

This is so breathtakingly beautiful, I can just imagine it whispered into some stranger's ear in the dark. (or maybe that's just me...) I love it.

when i saw the image's thumbnail it just seemed to me that it was of an Arabian Princess from the desert...and somehow the poem had had that well known style of desert poems(if i may say)...just reminded me of the love story between the Princess and a...ahhh wait! this is irrelevant...Sorry! i loved this.

Can't say I've ever read a desert poem. I'll have to look that up. :)

No, not a desert poem..it is just a style of poems that the Bedouin- or even sometimes some of the Arabian Princes and Princesses- write ..but i don't believe that they can be found translated into English..it's a kind of a pure local poetry..some of the Arab singers sang such poems...
they have such a metaphoric style that can make you indulge into those images.anyway this poem you wrote has such a characteristic..so again well done.
