“Love Stakes” Poem – Vampire Poetry

girl under tree 2

Love Stakes

Very Very Long Ago
There lived a Girl who didn’t know
Appearances can be Deceiving
Some things are beyond Believing

Alone she walked one Stormy Night
Tearful after a Lover’s fight
Distraught she cried beneath a Tree
“He was not the Guy for me”

Men they come in many Shapes and Sizes
But Vampires pick the best Disguises
“Pretty Girl, Why do you Cry?
The Stars are Shining in the Sky

Tonight is Magical, Can’t you See?
Please take my hand and come with me
Your Eyes, they Sparkle with Glistening Tears
Let me Try to End your Fears”

In front of her, there Stood a Stranger
Tall and Dark, She Sensed the Danger
Hair as Black as the Dead of Night
Seductive Eyes and Teeth, Pure White

A Flash of this guys Smile Could Kill
All the Girls were at his Will
A Man unequalled in the Handsome Stakes
The Gorgeous Ones are always Fakes

Raising her head, He touched her face
Her Heartbeat had begun to Race
He took her Hand, they began to Walk
He was Silent, Mysterious, He did not Talk

Eventually they stopped by a River Bank
He said, “My Darling I’ll be Frank
You’re unlike any girl I’ve ever Seen
But Baby, you don’t seem that keen

I Want your Body, I Want your Soul
Tonight you are my only Goal
Your Eyes, Your Smile, Your Blood Red Lips
Your Ample Breasts and Shapely Hips

To feel your Smooth Skin next to mine
Oh Honey, that would be Divine
Forget this World, Live for the Night”
And with these Words, He took a Bite

Screaming with Fear, She tried to get Free
He flung her down, “You’re Staying with Me”
Transfixed by his Eyes, She gave in to his Charms
An Innocent Girl in a Vampire’s Arms

And when she lay Drained
The Stranger Departed

But was this girl Dead
Or just Broken Hearted?
