Hearts master... A vampire poem

 

You are supposed to be scared

To run away from me in fear

Not try and nibble on my ear

 

Why is it I who feels ensnared?

This isn’t the way it’s supposed to be

Damn girl why aren’t you afraid of me?

 

Look deep into my eyes

Can you not see the danger around you?

Listen to my warning rare but true

 

It is certainly not wise

To press against my cold skin

Invoking thoughts of forgotten sin

 

 

I am more beast than man

Resisting the urge to kill

To taste your blood and watch it spill

 

Run sweet one while you can

This odd restraint will only last so long

My willpower has never been this strong

 

Your breath full of life

Risking your soul for a kiss

A taste of forbidden bliss

 

You are walking strife

A danger I’ve not known

Refusing to leave me alone!

Night after night

You follow me around

Worse than any hunter and his hound

 

Yet I am not sick of the sight

Of the way your skin glows

Or how your hair flows

 

In fact I am quite taken

By the swell of your hips

And the taste of your lips

 

But I am no good man fallen

Evil from the moment I was born

To darkness only my soul is sworn

 

 You will not live to see another day

The trust in your eyes such a waste

As your blood I finally taste

Yet words of love still you say

Warming my frozen heart

Tearing my evil plans apart

 

So drink now and please hush

As darkness takes your light

My blood turning you into a creature of the night

 

as into the darkness we rush

Seduced by your light gone forever

Not ready for what you have become, my hearts master

..well you know the epigramman always loves this poetic genre - especially when it comes from the dark corridors of your mind - you excel in this style of writing - it seems to be your poetic calling and I am glad I came calling in order to read it - bravo!!!

Interesting. Instead of the seducer, the vampire seems to be the seducee; pushing the girl away and warning her of ignorance. She obviously doesn't heed his warning and, in the end, vampires will be vampires.

4elements, Glad you liked it, Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know what you thought :)

samiaali,

vampires have always been a fascination of mine, so it comes naturally to me that they appear so often in my writing, I am Thrilled that you like my poems so much, Thank you!

epigramman,

ah so nice to have you call in again, I was afraid these vampire poems of mine may have overstayed their welcome, glad to hear otherwise thank you so much as always your comment has made my day :)

Doug Turner,

Indeed its not wise to push a vampire past his limits :) I am so glad to hear that you liked my poem, it is very much a case of the poor evil vampire being unwillingly seduced, so nice to have you stopping in again, thank you

....yes in a return to a classic - please keep writing about horror in all of its blood curdling glory because I think it's your poetic calling - but at the same a great writer (which you are) always moves around and tries different things and different genres and moods.

Either way I will always come back .....

thank you so so much for your encouragement ((hug)) I have so much fun writing these darker poems of mine, but don't wish to become redundant or worse boring,

So I will venture out a little and see where it takes me but no matter how far my writing may travel I have a feeling that it will always return to these dark roots of horror and paranormal,

Thank you so much for kind words, they mean a lot!

I love the seductive desire of this. True to the vampire's inner conflict.

I am thrilled that you liked this, not every vampire wants to fall in love...

thanks for stopping in :)


Desadi 5 years ago from Marietta, Ga

Yeah I think the vampire falling in love is often way over done even though I myself write like that sometimes I like the darker edge. It was definitely worth the read thanks!

I have had a fascination with vampires for years, before I started reading paranormal romance, the dark edge of mystery surrounded by horror has always held a huge appeal to me. I am glad you like this poem, vampires should have a darker edge then what we are getting in our films lately, Thanks for stopping by :)

Awesome poem. Why do the ladies always want to be seduced and cursed to eternal damnation by sexy vampires? ;]

The hunter becomes the prey.

Great writing, truly enjoyed this one

Ah its the mystery, the taboo, and don't forget the never ageing thing, that means no wrinkles or grey hair, huge plus right there, so lots of reason to hunt down a sexy vampire to ensnare :)

So glad that you liked this one as well :)
