"Give Us Your Best Scare!" Halloween Blog Hop


It's not much of a Blog Hop, since I seem to be the only one submitting this year, but here is my entry nevertheless. I decided to do something a little different and chose to offer a little vampire poem I wrote many, many years ago.




The Autumn Path


Temptation comes

Through the dark, dark woods

I can smell her yearning

I can taste her fear

Baring all
She bares her soul
The scent so sweet
Assault my primal senses

Leaves of Autumn

Crack and crumble
In shades of earth

They mark her passing


She comes to me
Her hair of ebony hue
Skin like snow
I see her on the dusty path

Tears of release
Red as my desire
Drawn to her
That forgiving curve
Just above the shoulder

It beckons me
Her lips
Her voice
Serene as the peace
I find within the taste of her

Come to me
I will make you whole
Pressed to my mouth
I will bring you to a final Heaven

The pain is gone
The night is wrapped in silence

Turn your eyes to me, my love
See how I adore
Tear your flesh, your innocence
It pours from you in gentle waves

The crimson stream
A tribute to my worship

My teeth
Finding flesh
Silver sighs

 -like the toll of silver bells


I wrap my arms around her
A dark caress

Death is nothing
Life is fleeting
We have found our harmony between

In the swirl of blood-red leaves
She bares her wounded heart
On the Autumn Path
