A Poem by David Lewis Paget

‘I begged you not to go to the lake

For I knew that he’d be there,

Whenever we’d go to the lake before

He would come out, sit and stare,

He lived in a cabin, made of wood,

Was a woodsman, through and through,

But the hairs rose up on the back of my neck

Each time that he stared at you.’

 

‘You wore that little bikini top

And the g-string pulled up tight,

I said that you’d catch your death out there,

It was cold, and nearly night,

But I saw you bridle at every glance

As he sat on his porch out there,

Then you swayed on down to the waters edge:

‘To get a fresh breath of air.’’

 

‘If only you could have seen yourself,

You looked like a sad man’s dream,

While he would twitch on his garden seat

Like a cat that had choked on cream.

I’d call you in, but you wouldn’t come

Though I’d watch through the window pane,

And you would titter, and he would laugh

As you wiggled his way again.’

 

‘What makes you fall for these burly men,

Could it be that they’re so uncouth?

Their manners say they haven’t a brain

So could it be faded youth?

You’ll never be twenty-one again,

Nor even remember when,

And if they knew what you’d want to do

They’d hide in the fields and fen.’

 

‘I begged you not to go to the lake

I can’t trust you on your own,

The police have got your description now

We’ll have to be moving home.

His jugular was punctured they said,

There wasn’t a drop in his veins,

And yes, you’re ten years younger again

But a hundred and ten remains!’

Haha!!! As usual you never disappoint! Initially, I thought it was a story about a flirtatious woman with a jealous husband. The woodman was initially being portrayed as criminally inclined, so being used to the abrupt twists and turns in you poems, I was expecting the husband to end up killing her out of jealousy.

But obviously, it was hubris to think I could anticipate your moves! The vampire angle came as a complete surprise!! One that gets younger by drinking blood, no less! That gives a whole new perspective to the husband's pleas, doesn't it? Cool!

Wel, I had to read this twice. The second time I ad a new perspective, of course. Vampires can't go in a house unless they're invited, so obviously she had to toll him out with her little bikini top and her g-string...

Just a normal day in the life of random vampire couple. But when you think about it from human point of view it sends shiver down your spine. Quite a thriller.

Oh! Shocker ending! Just dropped a vampire on us! How do you keep coming up with these completely unanticipated twists? I was expecting something dire and/or surprising. But, I was taken completely unawares by the ending.
