"Eternity" by Jenessa ´Shadow´ David

I love vampires and this is just one of my ways of showing my affection. It basically tells about how some of the not-so-evil vampires feel about being what they are. This was the poem that I sent to poetry.com. They ended up publishing it in their poetry anthology book 'Love And Laughter' (Okay, sad vampire poem + Love and Laughter = ???). It also ended up getting me a spot among 36 poets whose poems would be put on a CD collection and an Editor's Choice award and a spot in another anthology book--Night of the Silver Kiss is the one I entered for that. If you're wondering...Eternity was renamed to 'A Vampire's Eternity' for the Love and Laughter book. And I think some of it was changed to meet length requirements.

The night is my home

Blackness encircles my body

Holding me in its cold embrace

Shadows caressing my flesh with dark fingers

The moon light shatters the darkness

Rays turning my skin silver

Glistening in my eyes, on my fangs

Silence is my song

Glide through the night

Pursuing prey in the endless hunt

Answering the call of the blood

Heart throbbing, anxious for the kill

Giving chase now

Breathing in the fear

Overtake my prey

Two wide mortal eyes fix on me

Listen to the pulse, love it

Giving the silver kiss

Taking blood, stealing life

Feeling the pulse weaken, then stop

Look death in the face and laugh

Retreat to the grave before dawn

Return to the hunt at dusk

Cursed to cause pain for eternity

...and enjoy it

Youve created the essence of a vampire, I love the details here. It makes me feel creepy and thats a good thing with poems like this. I think you did a great job.

Oooh, this is fabulous! I love good poetry, the kind that sends a little shiver through you when you read it. ^_^ This one is so vivid I could picture all the images in my mind as I read it. Beautiful work!

0_o Ohhhh How awesome! I love how this was written! Normally you only hear about vampires killing then hating themselves for doing that but this poem showed another kind of vampire! The ones who like killing!

:-) Jenessa 'Shadow' David replies: "There does seem to be a lot of 'good' or 'tortured' vampires popping up and though I think they're great, I also love the ones who can snap someone's neck and grin about it. This one's a blend--because of her nature she can't help but enjoy killing, but deep down she knows it's wrong--she's just not sure if she cares. "

I love the way you say the night is your home. I too like the night. I live in the night you sound like a real vamp. Thats something I like see you later.
