Vampires' Moon

Vampires' Moon

A vampires’ moon draws me,

absent interiors, into its drunken, gloomy light.

Into violent actions under cool, soft leaves

whispering on the wind in wispy shadows sight.

 

An anchored timeless engagement to the underworld

would spore voracious, vile temperaments of evil.

Frightening and unquenchable, never to be suppressed,

seeking to destroy, taking flight in your bloody drink undressed.

 

Falls against me with intoxicated, hazy, sullen gaze, the prey.

The wrath that dwells beneath, words can’t replay.

Eyes search to make the faint, beauty glimmer once more.

Whilst the drain of life, gleans a grim smile from my lips.

 

Dawn approaches, disappear I must now,

soaked in salty, lucid, bloody lust.

Lay tranquil, sleep, dear sweet, swiftly savored jewel,

as your corpse is taken into dust.

 

-M. Jacobs

Very creepy, yet also erotic. Hmmm...was that your intent? A great job. Vampires always give me the creeps. I never understood the female attraction. I do get the analogies though. Oh what a tangled web you weave Miss Marty. How is your husband ever able to sleep at night...if you get my drift. Me thinks he should do so with one eye always open. Beware of the one eyed vipor...Thanks for sharing...K

It truly comes from the poetic side of me, only. There is nothing harmful to it. Years ago, I became fascinated with Vampires with the reading of a series of books penned by Ann Rice. They left an lasting impression on me. Many thanks for reading it and your thoughts.

Funny! I know it's like place that I don't actually write from that often but it's interesting and mystical, no less, making it good subject matter from a dreamstate or the like. I appreciate you reading it and always love feedback. TY

I will disagree on one point with the venerable Knight, may he be chivalrous forever! I love when your darkness is exposed to your bold beams of the lighted insight and you will answer your own darkness with a brilliance of words that shines as a beacon to minister to the fallen distressed ( your words have drained my strength to the point of faint reflection, sorry) The joy of death's kiss is all too real in this drug-like state of euphoric reverie. 10*!

Wow! Quite a compliment! I am honored to hear your words and hope that I can do that again sometime. Many thanks!

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
