"Prisoner"

The door is locked,
chained and bound.
There's no way in,
no way out.
I hear your heart beating.
Are you scared now?

You are my prisoner,
forever in my hold.
There's nothing you can do,
no need to be bold.
I can see your teeth chattering,
are you cold?

Choose your poison wisely,
Keep quiet if you can.
There's really no need to worry,
Come on, take my hand.
Are you nervous now?
I see you sweating where you stand.

There's really no use to fight,
I have everything under control.
And if you die tonight,
I get your soul.
Its a small price to pay,
but someone has to pay the toll.

Dry your eyes my dear.
It will all be over soon.
I promise you won't feel a thing,
just your immortal doom.
For all the lives you took,
I make this room your tomb.

WOW! I love poetry like this. It hits close to home.

I think it has some similarities to my poem "Crimson Fangs"

Please check it out, this reminded me of it very much.

I really really like this.

Yeah I didn't realize you had already commented that one.

I've posted 26 of them in 3 days and have some trouble keeping track of them.

Nice Nikki. Your poem is both dark and strong at the same time.

It's very difficult for strong people, both good and bad, to feel a loss of control.

Your writing is two opposing sides of the same coin - a profound warning to those who are bad, but at the same time it creates a exciting off-balance tension for those of us who are use to control in order to do the right thing, to follow our hearts.

For us of the latter, however, it is incredibly intriguing to be under the control of those we trust. Can we trust you Nikki?

Love your work. A big up for your efforts.

Will.

Hmm thanx for the input will. At first i wasnt really sure where i was going with this poem, the first verse just kinda came out of no where and i went from there. I wasnt sure if i should have the person under my "Control" an actual human being or an immortal. i guess I went with the latter hence your immortal doom. Its basically me holding a vampire as prisoner and teaching him a lesson for the wrong hes done. Idk if he should trust me in the poem, perhaps so, trust me to teach him, or trust me to kill him, either way, im very trust worthy in the real world :)

I love the notion of a good vampire, and OK, I trust you with my life. Personally I'm a strange kind of vampire somewhere between good and bad, but on the path to do good things...

Sent a shiver down my spine- the atmosphere is conjured up brilliantly by the words. Yet, somehow, frightened as I am why do I feel I would love to be locked in? Well done!
