Inspired by Christopher Lee - the greatest vampire of all.

Seductive his eyes,
compelling dark eyes
rimmed in red.
So it begins...

A suffocating airless night.
Upon my throat the lightest kiss,
Alone in my soft bed,
while all around the dense ether
is filling with a lover's presence.
Wishful thinking -
or senses' deception?
Yet the airborne stench of moldering earth
grows ever stronger.
As my body craves him more and more,
the starless night grows darker
and a wild excitement
such as I've never known before
grips my pounding heart.
Terrified - yet craving.
Desperate to escape - yet transfixed.
My pupils dilate.
But I see nothing
except the blackest of black.

Oh please
come to me now!
Make me immortal like you.
Dance with me down the centuries.
Here is a willing victim. I beg you...
kidnap me...take me to Castle Dracula...
make me your Queen of the Night?
My window's wide open.
The outside flows in.
On the floor lies a crucifix torn from my neck,
it's broken chain symbolic
of the ultimate self-sacrifice:
the deadliest of ambitions.

Now, finally, he comes.
Sharp fangs pierce my jugular - oh the agony
of such ecstasy!
Living and undead blood cells mingle in my veins
and I feel my Soul darken.
My dying lips eagerly seek his
in blood.
I am changed.

And so it ends as it began:
I am ravenous...

    1. Thank you so much, dear Gloria!
      So happy you liked it :)

  6. I so enjoyed the poem, even with my inability to truly understand the desire to be bitten and abused by such a crazy evil creature.

    1. Ha...teenage girls...they crave the most inappropriate things...well, I know I did...used to spend hours hanging around old abandoned graveyards in the dark! lol

      So glad you enjoyed reading it though.
      Many thanks :)

  7. haha happy halloween...def there was a time earlier in life i was so seduced by the thought of vampirism and immortality...not so sure i want it anymore....

    used to hang around those graves as well....

    1. Ha...a person after my own heart!
      It's strange how, as we grow more mature and think more deeply, those things begin to seem much less desirable...
      Wouldn't relish even walking through a graveyard at night now! lol

      Many thanks, Brian.:)

  8. Oh, what a gem! I laughed and was rolling on the floor with that image at the end. Beautiful poem. Full of vivid scenes. Thanks.
