StrangePersuasions

In 2005, before the publication of his bestselling novels, Alistair Cross penned hundreds of poems which he sometimes shared on various social media platforms. His poetry has earned him appearances on radio talk shows around the world and attracted a large and loyal readership.

Divided into four parts that are devoted to such subjects as love and loss, passion and seduction, and nightmares and horrors, The Book of Strange Persuasions is a striking collection that features some of his most insightful, sensual, and poignant works.

Spread me like silk
At the forefront of mind
Look in my eyes
As I render you blind
~
So the salt of the sea
As it rages in me
Makes its white-fever way
To your taste gradually
~
With drained anticipation
Will you wait to be claimed
By passion’s finale
As with rhythm, it rained
~
So that angels in waiting
Were like tears in your eyes
As I painted upon you
A pearlescent disguise?
~
Will a welcome home smile
In the midst of all this
From the pollen spring forth
And find life on your lips
~
Would you like to be stained
My vile valentine
Would you like to be conquered
Would you like to be mine
~
