VamPyre

vampyre

 

As you dwindled on the pyre

Sparks flew higher and higher.

Then one brave spark came to me

I watched it flicker, it was all I could see.

Through my stomach it burnt its way

And I was filled with you and what you could do

The magic spark that your life was made of

Was the making of mine now.

I knew I had power.

You had bitten me in death

With your smokey breath

While your embers  are still burning

I am already turning.

Fyre. Desyre.

 Vampyre.

Feeline 

And nobody mourned her death

Except for a single white rose that bobbed in the wind

And from the corner of my eye reminded me of her return in the morning

Soft and cautious on the gravel

Her miaow catching the wind

Her little soul my only companion on many a rainy day.

Livewire

‘Oh you’re a wiry one’

She would say this without malice but the words hurt all the same.

Did she mean sharp? I have a sharp tongue I’m told and it slices strips off you.

Maybe she meant that I could never sit still

That there was a tremor in my blood

Electricity always running through my core

Well I tell you, I’m electric no more.

‘Is there a pulse?’ I hear this in the distance but all I see is her face and slow thud of my heart fading.

‘ A wiry one’. I smile inside.

I’ll ask her what she meant.

Funeral

‘He was in love with you.. did you know that?’

It’s too late now. Too late.

What can I do ?

Look back at all the gazes

All those confusing moments

I thought I had imagined them all

That I had been the only one to fall.

‘no one knew it except me. He was afraid .. you see?’

He was afraid and so was I

It’s too late now to even cry.

I am silent now as they put you in the ground.

Nothing but my heart making a sound.

It’s beating right out of chest

As your lovely body is laid to rest.

Now all I can think about is that day

When you were supposed to meet me

But you didn’t.

And I never called you again.

Never Forgive

never-forgive

I will forgive you…

When you’re dead

When the worms have consumed your smug smile

When you can no longer haunt me, taunt me.

The living make better ghosts you see

Their pulsing hearts, their burning desire

Add to fuel to my fire.

‘Let it go.. let it go’ ?

Forgiveness will heal you?

Bah. Nah. NO!

I thrive on this anger

I combust with that flame.

Forgiveness is for the corpses

Forgiveness is for the lame.

#Soul goals 

‘Oh to die a hero’

Is there anything better?’

Assuming we’ll feel pride when we are dead.

So you believe in the afterlife ? 

No. No. No.

Then why bother dying a hero? 

But if you believe in more

You believe in a soul

Then dying for the right thing

Must be your goal.

The terrible thing though

Is that what you deem to be  true

Is completely different to my point of view

So please never ever, cause alarm

It is not your destiny to do harm

You must not interfere

It is never your role

To decide the passing of another soul.

Recoil

recoil

Go into the earth

You must.

From flesh to dust.

No more lust.

Go into the soil

You’ve left this mortal coil

Wound so tight around your neck.

You’ve taken it upon yourself,

Some might say.

But it was never a choice

That terrible voice.

Go into the dark my dear

But step into the light

There were always shadows

But in between was bright.
