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

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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.

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

      Voted up, funny, and interesting.

      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.
