The Vampire stood at a viewpoint

gazing at the stars,

they were utterly still–cold,

harsh light without earth’s atmosphere

to make it twinkle,

nuclear explosion nearly destroyed the earth

several years ago,

and now the images are left unperturbed,

never to feed,

no one to bleed,

now traveling seemingly through space,

looking, haunting,

remembering he doesn’t die,

no cure,

nothing pure,

only to endure,

the Vampire’s cry.

Frank, your creepy poem sounds great, Joyce. Voted up not sure what else suits your poem. H/P's should give some different types of feedback.

I think you captured quiet well the curse of immortality. The shining possibility of eternal life overpowers the common sense reality of nothing to live for after a while. I like it!

I agree with poetvix-immortality is a curse when there is no 'body' to share it with, LOL. I love your interesting way that you create your poetry-seen through a different perspective...very creative.

Hi Frank -

What an interesting premise, I never thought about what might happen to such creatures in the event of a nuclear holocaust. Eerily perfect, as usual. SHARING
