Hotel Room...A vampire poem

Updated on August 14, 2012

 

The bloody twisted sheets

The shattered glass mirror

Bathed in the red flickering light of the street

The flimsy curtains try and hide the horror

 

High heels and torn stockings

Ripped clothes thrown from the bed

Her painted lips desperately gasping

Her eyes full of fear and dread

 

 

Trapped alone in darkness

Drunken laugher all around

She lay’s broken and helpless

Hardly able to make a sound

 

Spilt white wine

Drowning the hundred dollar bills

The chilling touch of death down her spine

 Onto the floor her lifeblood slowly spills



A bloody grin

A flash of soulless eyes

Cold fingers now warm against her icy skin

Watching each tortured breath as she slowly dies


The hum of traffic fills the air

The lights of the city beckoning

Closing the door behind him without care

He moves on his hunger never ending

      Such beautiful, dark imagery! I can see the horror in that hotel room, its brutality occurring unnoticed by the city outside the door. Very descriptive, captivating, and simply wonderful. I loved it!

      epigramman,

      I am thrilled that you liked this(I was hoping you would ) I have no idea which one of us is darker, I simply find it marvellous that we can inspire each other so much here on hubpages. but be careful where the mind takes you, dear sir sometimes it doesn't want to let you free

      ..well hot damn - writing like this .... gets me all excited - and I don't know who is darker - me or you - maybe we should collaborate on something 'black' - lol lol - and when I have the immense pleasure of reading you - I really want to explore some really deep places in the back of my mind ........

      glad you like it, that stanza is my favorite in this short poem, which is odd, because when I started writing it I was so focused on the first few lines which had been in my head for days before putting pen to paper. I think its because it speaks of a relationship even short between the victim and vampire. for whatever reason I am glad that you liked it :)

      Creepy cool. It's funny, for all of the fine sinister imagery, the line that jarred me the most was "spilt white wine". Sometimes, especially in a tense poem like this, it's surprising what sets off the trigger.

      thank you so much, Coming from a dark poet such as yourself that means a lot to me...

      I am so so glad that you liked this enough for a revisit!

      I will do my best to create more, if the muse within lets me :)

      between you and De Greek I am feeling very flattered, to have such great writers be so complimentary of my work leaves me a little speechless.

      Thanks heaps for your comment and the vote up, I am so happy that you liked it!

      De Greek state it very well. You are a gifted writer and poet, you can live in the moment of your darkness and combine the imagery to master it well.

      This is a bloody mess, in a great way. Blood and drugs, the vampires thirst for blood never ending. She is another victim of the night's banquet. Bravo/applaud, voted UP

      Thanks I am glad you liked it, I know red wine is the more fitting almost expected in a scene like this, but I personally cant stand the stuff, so I couldn't add it in... but if others agree that red would suit the verse better I will happily change it, thanks for the comment and the critique both are always welcome :)

      DexisView,

      thank you I am glad it make an impact

      I had to come back to read this again. Your descriptions are so vivid. Hum of the traffic, lights of the city beckoning, then him leaving, This is soo good. It gave me a creepy feeling, but it was a thrilling creepy. Thank you. More please!!

      Might be short, but it leaves the mind open for dreams and new paths in the night. Lovely in my eyes. Thank you.

      nice poem - only recommendation I could make is to change 'white wine' to 'red wine' - it just seems more fitting.
