Dracula's First Tear

Updated on May 28, 2014

Dracula

That did it

Dracula's First tear Poem

There was a time I was feared by all who saw

A time pictures of evil people would draw

Representing the threat my name alone would bring

Could slice enemies alone with my wing

A cold dead silence those did know

I was darker then raven written about by Edgar Allen Poe

I ended the lives of oh so many

drank the blood of plenty

made my kind feared by the rest

able to withstand a bullet to my chest

enemies I left a bloody mess

a pool of blood yes that's what's left

But now disgrace I have seen

Not by the young children on Halloween

Flattery I respect and am well aware

From the fangs to my slicked back hair

Yet I look at people today

They made my kind appear weak to my dismay

Walking around in the sun as if its normal

preposterous maybe in another dimension through a time portal

A joke this must be

What is it that I see on TV

People looking thin and frail

So bold with weak bodies they don't wear chainmail

disgusted at they way they shown I

Some sort of model emo boy

no I can't believe this has happened to I a creature of pure evil

They use to run in fear from me cathedral to cathedral

Now a joke I have become

What has this movie done

"Twilight" what does that have to do with Me

"Twilight" making me seem so cowardly

"Twilight" you hurt the soul I don't have

"Twilight" you make me so........sad

This is the first tear I've wept

Who made this horrible movie I must have slept

I must digress I shall leave these portraying me a weak fool with with a hole in there chest

      Good poem Joe. I love the different viewpoint you offer in your poetry. I used to love the old vampire movies with Vincent Price and Peter Cushing and the like! also Bram Stoker's Dracula. I cannot get interested in 'twilight' and the recent revamped vampire cult at all, it has made a joke out of the genre as far as I'm concerned, but many readers and viewers speak and while the money rolls in this will keep going. Voted up.

      Amusing. I bet Dracula would view Twilight just as you've stated ;)

      Voted up, funny, and interesting.

      haha thanks guys this just came to me while I was thinking of the old world style of vampires (Dracula specifically) and how it's been turned into a teenage fanfiction genre. I felt like he'd feel mocked in a sense.

      Thanks for sharing the amusing poem! It's very interesting to see how the popular idea of a vampire's nature has changed over time. I can understand why some people would be upset about the changing image!

      Thanks Crissp for the vote and Alicia, It's one of those things that upsets people because it just feels like the vampires of old in a sense will be forgotten. The Vincent Price style of a vampire can't exist in a Twilight type of world. Thank you for your comment and input.

      An interest slant, and such a creative idea.

      Great view of "today's" vampire. Very interesting. Voted up and sharing.

      Yes, good thinking. Dracula would be most troubled by the new image vampires. Well he's the original variety - no doubt he'll be back with a vengeance. Really made me think and smile - thoughts of a vampire - most interesting.
