Emotional Vampire

There once was a time,
you could light up a room with
a simple smile.  Now,
when you enter, lights dim,
smiles fade, and
emotions flee to the edge.
Being incapable of
your own survival, you
sap the life of those around you.
Drop by precious drop, until
there's nothing left but sorrow.

Dallas D'Angelo-Gary 09

A very strong and concentrated image, Dallas. You have captured this spot-on with a superb cameo. This impacts me big-time... it's a wonder I have blood, marrow or strength left in any of my mind, body, spirit departments owing to the way i've experienced these characters head-on(or neck-on!) all through my life... and still do... I've a real sense of the light-bulbs flickering and waning and the walls of the room trembling here. Excellent stuff! xx

I know someone like that. I think everybody knows at least one emotional vampire! You have described her (or him) well, Dallas. Hope you didn't lose too much blood!

Yikes, I think I was once married to one of these...still have the bite marks. I like the title a lot. I use to and still do claim that some people are so needy that if they could, they'd suck the marrow out of your bones. Thanks for sharing. J'nia

Sad, yes...but so powerful...and I think I've known a person or two who fits this to a t!

I like this. A little different take on the vampire mystic ... In this case it is emotions, not blood, which are sucked from you . . . Hard to judge which is worse.
Reviewed by Peter Schlosser (Reader) 9/30/2009
Been there many a time. You can almost feel the life-force draining out of you around these people. Be it a work or at home, it's still devastating to endure. Effectively expressed.

Oh, this one is sad, Dallas, effectively penned - well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, karla.

Whatever caused the change in your subject must have been sad. Another great write.
