A Chapter by joshua deathdealer
"

08/2011 (Blood type B: Installment Two)

"
I have tasted the fairy tales, drained
from unaccommodating occupants
as shots ring out in the night air
bodies drop to quench our thirst 

I have watched their befuddled demons
echo, mirrored on their dying faces
reaching out and weighing me down
desperate to pull me into their early hell

It's just the same old story, over and over again
days turn into years, tears dry into fears
my vile hands drag across this ageless photograph
that vaguely reminds me of a life hopelessly lost
bartered away for vanity and immortality 

there is nothing new underneath the sun
even the wonder and excitement of life
that pushes your feet seemingly forward
toward the only thing that is truly certain

graves are full of the hopeful

that last line just grabbed me by the throat and pummeled me into the ground. "the graves are full of the hopeful" wow that really pulled the whole thing together for me..it was like the pyrotechnics at the end of a show! just BOOM! this was such a wonderful write. I love how dark and honest this is. I also love the first line too. Just referring to something so innocent and saying that you've heard them all makes it sound like you're growing up now and you see the world for what it really is :) I can really relate to that. Great job again and thanks for posting!

A truly epic feel to this instalment. Pwerful and strong. Striking in its scale and power. Brilliant work mate. Loved every word.

This write was great. The whole story came out. The last line was awesome. I like the dark nature in which you write this piece in. I enjoyed reading this, Josh. Thanks for sharing.

For the sake of being helpful I'll try my best to read through each chapter, but to be honest I don't usually get into Vampire novels. . First thing that struck me was the similarity to Interview With A Vampire but I liked that Movie and Never actually read the book. So I'm going to stop here and apologies for my idiocy. Sorry if I offend. Although I must agree with Megan, that last line pummels one to the ground.

The logic of the poem is true. Direct and honest words told the truth.
"I have watched their befuddled demons
echo, mirrored on their dying faces
reaching out and weighing me down

Last line made the poem complete. Thank you for a excellent poem.

Love it. When you lose someone close to you, it seems like the end

The grave sings as the door is always open when I walk by. How it invites me how the words you speak inspire me.
