Calling In the Dark - How A Vampire Bite Calls You in the Dark

What is it about a man covered in blood that can be so sexy?  I don't get it, but it's true.  He's hot.

Sometimes we want what we know is bad for us all the more.

Don't be your own worst enemy.  All that glitters is not gold.  Hm.  Sometimes it is.

Mm, Lestat. Yummy. I thought Townsend better than Pit.

I did not create, nor do I own the video above. It is a montague of scenes from Anne Rice's movie adaptation of the novel "The Vampire Lestat" It was created and uploaded to youtube.com by tornprincess. The song is by Townsend.

Callings In the Dark


Late at night I heard a call.

Darkness fell around all

that encircled me.

I could not flee.

~

Your calling enthralled.

I tried so hard to stall.

It was meant to be.

But why me?

~

I know you for what you truly are.

You appear to be a shining star.

But I feel death’s breath in your call.

I don’t really want to fall

~

for you, my darkest fear,

yet to me you appear.

I can’t turn away,

though I don’t want to stay.

~

I’m under your spell

cast so well

in musical tones

reaching into my bones.

~

Pulling me ever closer to my doom.

You smile over me and loom

captivating what is already gone.

Against all reason for you I long.

~

Your bite is so sweet

when you smile and eat

what is left of my soul

filling the hole

~

left from a life of regret.

I should be so upset

but welcome you in

to cleanse and begin

~

my farewell dance this night.

I no longer can fight.

Thus I go through the gate.

Your calling was my fate.

~

From the astral plane I see

you drain the last blood from me.

A single tear upon your face

you killed what you only meant to abase,

~

to own as your trophy bride.

Something I will never abide.

So I give unto you it all

escaping your seductive call.



How do you view vampires?

Some cast them as villains, others tragic heroes? What are your thoughts?

  • Definitely bad no exceptions except maybe Edward who doesn't count. Who ever heard of a glowing vampire?
  • It depends on the vampire in question. Vampire is as vampire does.
  • Tragic hero for sure. How can anyone that sexy be all bad?

A vampire wife's appatite

I never wanted your life.

I wanted to be your wife.

Since the night of the bite,

nothing is really all right.


I see your thick vein throb

my morals away to rob.

I can't live with what I've done.

I've taken the life of the only one,


that could ever be for me.

My dear husband...

I'm so sorry for thee.

You make "being bitten" sound better than being "smitten".

/Evil grin... careful Mr. MidNight... that could be a bad place to be... my creativity can get rather twisted if I am in a bad mood.

Thanks for your kind words and for stopping by. Always a pleasure to see you.

...you have always been one of my favorite writers here Rhonda hands down - and I am always absolutely thrilled to hear from you in one of your comments to me - I will post this most magnificent piece of writing by POETVIX to my Facebook page with a direct link back here and I have a homework assignment for you - in reference to your love of heavy metal music please check out a wonderful documentary called Global Metal and Metal: A headbanger's journey directed by Sam Dunn - I have them both on dvd and a good place to see a preview is You Tube.

Merry Christmas to you my friend and happy new year with continued health and happiness and headbanging too - lol - and more of your creative writing

Trophy bride to an immortally entombed creature, now that is a honeymoon to avoid at all costs. Sinking my teeth into this little treasure tonight Poetvix. Sorry been a little overworked and undercover, but you are in my thoughts. May your mortal always be coiled. Serpents that eat of serpents become reborn as dragons, so don't let your tail be a dragon.

Keep on Hubbing into 2013 my poetic queen. Blake4d

Blake4d ~ Seeing you put a sorely needed smile on my face. I'm glad you enjoyed this dark little ditty. It does sound the honeymoon from hell. Here's wishing you nothing but the best for 2013. God bless and hub on!

For those of you who may not know him, Blake4d is as deep as it gets. Give him a read. I promise you won't be disappointed.
