Phantom





















Phantom manifestation of dreams, shadowy figure
  Haunting chill, musical notes circulating night air
     Awakening, seductive eyes hidden from view
        Nocturnal life awaits, vibrating with sound
           Tambourine Man, plays his hypnotic song
            Our hearts entwined, purring with pleasure
                 Moments of love, stolen under moonlight

  4. I wouldn't trust him as far as you could throw him. Never trust a man who never shows his eyes.
    He's just a phantom and there are much nicer fish in the sea, like me!
    and the cat doesn't like him.

    I thought the design and development was very clever.
    Thanks for your comment ~ Eddie

  7. Looks like a vampire wannabe I say. Run the other way lol but love and pleasure can't be beat, when given ever so sweet. But if the cat tries to get away, you may not want to sway lol great job with the form too at your zoo.

    That caught my eye too the moment I saw the pic.! It gave a sense of sinister look that could be damning and very well caught in your take Truedessa! Great!
