Letter To A Vampire Lover
By La Belle Rouge
Today I pen the secrets, long hidden in the dark
the truth about what we have clandestinely done
the truth so excruciating, horrendous and stark
Tried to resist the power exuded by the only one
who ever caused my heart to tremble and pound
with rhythm of a seductive, primal, jungle drum
Mysterious that’s what you were, when around
my speech was a stutter, I drank too much rum
My eyes were overwhelmed by raw lust in yours
and I could not look away.... even though I tried
They seemed to fling sparks of fire into my core
If I had claimed not to want you, I would have lied
Forbidden, unholy lover, led me to the gates of hell
I willingly followed you and I vowed to never tell
Memory drifting back again to the power of your kiss
No warmth or tenderness resided in your cold touch
and yet my body would burn with desire and insist
that you were the only one I’d ever covet that much
You made me what I am today, an insidious, evil ghoul
with blood on my hands, senseless slaughter on my soul
I became your slave, your compliant puppet and fool
and now ‘tis far too late to ever be forgiven and whole
Crimson rivers ran in ditches as city streets we prowled
Screams of mothers, fathers, even infants so pure
as in the forest under a full moon, hungry wolves howled
Any mortal who crossed our path our evil would endure
Three hundred years together, yet it ended all too soon
I pen on paper our story, before, soon, I meet my doom

|Belle, A great descriptive Halloween poem!

|A quantum hauting into the
macabe that you so richly do!!!

|Again, Belle, the power of your words conjures both the fantastic, mystical and mythical AND the potential for actual scenario in terms of the real-life elements of human psyche and relationship. This drags me in as a reader, drags me along with the drama (let alone the brilliant rhyme and metre) so that I, too, feel almost unstoppably compelled by the inevitability of this doom and fate. As the saying goes, nobody does it better! :)) xx|

|I sense the heart of a cryptic whose sophistication belies a rustic soul. The rhyme is sublime, the cadences full and the parts add up to a greater hole that the heart of your hero can hide. I enjoyed the read, dear Poetess. Looking forward to the next. (not that I'm restless, mind you.)|

|Wonderfully raw, primeval and sexy too. Well written. Who could want more.|

|Belle, this is classical quality poetry, vampire or no -- "they seemed to fling sparks of fire into my core" is positively exquisite and original -- now quickly, grab the pen and freshen the nib with bloody fluid and write on -- I bid you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

|I am reminded of, “An interview with a Vampire,” one of the few of this genre that I like. This one reeks of codependency, good clinging to evil. Richly written, as you usually do.

|Your writing always glows at this time of year, so hauntingly beautiful.

|Red the ink you writhe with, there is a whole horror movie in this short, but oh so skillful allegory, poetry, the time of year is coming to refresh your needs again, good hunting!
Hugs! Jasmin Horst

|Hauntingly amazing poetry, Belle...as only you can write. I love the way you wrote this, with passion and darkness.
I miss our Halloween bashes...will we ever have one again???
Happy Halloween, and don't stay up too late, my dear..
Peace, love and light,
