“Temptation Waits” – The Matriarch Soundtrack (Music to Write By)

SkyTreeFangMoon10I use music – often an entire playlist – to create a mindset and mood when I construct a scene.

The first time I heard “Temptation Waits” by Garbage was on the Buffy The Vampire Slayer soundtrack. I imagine an urban predator stalking its prey with illicit intent, crossing a bar in full view of patrons that can’t help but take notice; this fit perfectly for the scene I had imagined.

I’ll tell you something…
I am a wolf but… I like to wear sheep’s clothing.
I am a bonfire…
I am a vampire… I’m waiting for my moment.

The target is meant to think that someone is coming to see them, but they’re actually coming for them.

You are a secret… A new possession…
I like to keep you guessing.
