A Chapter by Dave Brown



Headlights, slashing through the night

Intrusive probing, haunting the sight

Echo’s shriek off cliff surround                                

Hillside creatures flee the sound


From her sweet neck, sipped in rush                   

A stain on the blouse, of maiden so lush

Vampire made well his foray    

Her sweet sauce, he will sup on this day


Through steel gates, far from morn’s light

Maiden carried down darkened stair flight

Heartless lusting from her sweet sight              

Vampire will feast through deep of night


A quiver comes from her weakened head

As goes to tomb, where waits her doom bed

His lust fueled chase, for her sweet taste    

Her small cry as he bends in his haste


But he must stop this craving so wild

Refrain the drain of so sweetest child

Not drink nor gore nor gash lush lass

For as his wife, she must come to pass


His pale hands lift his intended bride

To hold and keep her, freedom denied

To place inside black nightmarish tomb

To lay trapped beside such foul groom


But inebriated from her sweet juice

He swoons from his joy filled abuse

When he falls faint upon cold hard floor

She crawls feebly toward exterior door


She drags weakened body, ever so frail

Exhausted, reaches for upper stair rail

Anguished crawl up stairwell’s flight

Painful toward bright of morn’s light.


Revolted by both stench and gore

She escapes through dark manor door

While back inside, in dank down below

Evil red eyes in evil skull glow


In death’s parlor, the curser of life

Searches in vain for his intended wife

She in bright sunlight on safest ground

Her heart beating, life’s sweetest sound


Where slithered, through gore and slime

Where dragged upward on her tense climb

Through manor door, cross ramp, over moat

Where falling autumn leaves still gently float


Lust filled thoughts of frustrating delay

Tantalized him into bright light of day

Where searing sunlight pon his black crown

Melts man shape into screaming mad sound


Black steam rose from his charnel shape

Black wings flocked past maiden agape

Flew they then to vanish on high

Red eyes cursing the blue of bright sky


Filled sky with black wing’s turned to gas

Vampire filth stained manor grass

The arm that grasped for her gentle foot

Lay where reached, but now as soot

I have a strong hunch this is autobiographical. Nobody can write with such high-steppin' glee when it comes to blood cocktails, until you've tossed back a few. Do I see a few drops of blood in your snowy owl beard as I gaze at your manly avatar with the Yeti scowl? How does your main squeeze feel about you broadcasting your perversions in verse? I'm just slamming you becuz I'm so weak this season & I'm jealous of your impressive flow of fancy gore (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Sunlight is effective not just against bacteria and viruses but against stinky vampires too. That was a close shave and a very dramatic yet happy end but I fear the young lady will suffer from PTSD and keep looking over her shoulder for a long time to come. A greatly entertaining poem and very well composed!

She will no doubt have a few bad dreams

Perhaps a nice, handsome shrink could help 😁
