Bela Lugosi

Bela Lugosi

A Poem by duff

"

Dark corners are coming alive

The apartment is awake tonight

Fingertips walking up the spine 

Turn around no one in the light

Floor is freezing feet are blue

Body’s cold the sweater is new

Room to room like a private eye

One two three empty closet sigh

There’s a silhouette by the fern

A cape stands a cigarette burns

His porcelain face made of hurt

Bela Lugosi is breathing tonight

You've been watching too many of those old horror movies! Bela Lugosi was great as a vampire many years ago in the black and white movies. I remember him. You have described perfectly what it feels like to be afraid of the dark nasties and grimy ghoulies that lurk in the shadows at night. I enjoyed it. Lydi**

I haven't thought of ol' Bella in a long time. This poem well captures the frightening, flickering, silver film image very well.

Thank you Dave! The legend is celebrated every year
this is so cool...I love the old 1931 Dracula with Bela...
He is the ultimate Bat...
Unfortunately for him he was stereotyped, maybe that is why he has come back to haunt
the speaker of the poem...being the only self he could remember.
