Deaths dream-a dark poem

vampires castle
vampires castle | Source


The night was so dark

With only flashes to light the way

I couldn’t stop the fearful beat of my heart

My lips never ceasing to pray


Every step betraying me

As I draw closer to the dark gate

So desperate to touch, so keen to see

The final acts of my dark fate


Across the threshold I enter

So close I can smell every part of you

Your enslaved reluctant lover

Drawn in by your black voodoo



To kneel at your feet

On cold unfeeling stone

Your smile and touch revelling in my defeat

As you sit back on your throne


The dead dance silent

In your grey forgotten halls

The walls painted with forgotten violence

As over the roof demons crawl


Yet I am lost in your eyes

Even as my soul uselessly screams

Your kiss cold and deep as your claim your prize

Waking nightmare turning into deaths dream


Onto bloody sheets we fall

Your cold dead body now warm

Filled with my blood, my life, my all

My throat bloody and torn


But no blessed darkness

Rises to take away my pain

Crimson blood binds me to my dark mistress

As from the dead I rise again


Claimed by your dark obsession

Enslaved warrior of the blood cursed

Lost to all life’s care and true passion

Filled now with your never ending thirst


Under the endless night sky

My heartbroken denial I scream

Watching everything I love wither and die

Trapped forever in deaths dream

I love it! I'm a sucker for the dark and passionate poetry such as this! Great job. :o) It shows the lust of some dark forces in this world, some in disguise for that matter.

To have a poet that I admire so much both as an artist and a person, find inspiration in my work is both a massive compliment and a huge honour .
