Dracula's BrideShe trembled
how pale and pleading
her blue eyes as she watched
from behind her veil of fright,
and yet, within, her heart beat
faster for the desire of the cold touch
of his fingers against her supple fair flesh.
She was captivated
and yet imprisoned,
like a gravitational pull
drawn by indivisible force
towards him, always propelled,
and still it seemed repulsed,
a rabbit within a snare
panic infused wanting to flee,
but yielding to the ruby red
of his lips.
that world of warmth
and life, of which she walked away,
and ever knowing
that death forever was calling her name,
she fears him and will always ask
what fated her to choose him,
when he smiles she shivers
from the inside vibrating out along
her spine, and when he touches her
she melts into his embrace
hypnotized she will take his hand,
willingly, thrillingly, deliriously
she follows into his afterlife
and her heart bleeds
into his darkness.

Alone and forbbiden from light.
Nothing but cold, I stand in shadow,
People frightened by my sight.
A fair lady sees past the pale
And into my still beating heart.
...Could this be love I feel?
What is this beautiful piece of art?
We escaped together hand in hand.
Only now can I experience feeling.
Light may ignite me to ashes,
But her love is there for healing.
Her family and friends disagree.
How could I ever do the things they accuse?
I, too, can experience emotions.
My love, I will not lose.
In the bright of day, they steal her.
Kill her, I could not stop her death.
Rage consumes my eternal soul.
My one and only has lost all breath.
...Track them down.
Kill them all.
My revenge will be felt.
They will surely fall.
Wipe my tears as I smear their blood.
The wall covered with stain.
God is dead, and in his place
The demon defining pain.
Dracula's New ClothesThe moon shone over the thick forest trail. The light illuminated the road, but it did not calm the traveller's concerned mind. He was hopelessly lost in the Transylvanian woods and it was nearing midnight when he had last checked his watch. He should have listened to the local villagers in the town of Vaseria, but he did not believe their strange superstitions. But now they wouldn't leave his mind, and worst of all, he felt like he was being watched.Dracula's New Clothes3 years ago in Humor More Like This
A wolf howled in the distance. The traveller looked around trying to see if anything was near him. He saw nothing. If there was something or someone watching him they would be obscured by the shadows. He pulled out his revolver and made sure it was loaded. He knew that if anything they told him about actually existed it wouldn't hurt them, but he would give one hell of a fight. He tightened the high collar of his cloak and continued on, going deeper into the forest in hopes of finding a farmhouse or something of the sort.

But her prowess and powerfully peaceful face
Often found solace in the good and grace

Of where her power met the ocean's roar,
Where her prowess meant nothing more

Dracula's backstory- My Last Mistake oneshotBefore I ever met Mina Harker, before I even considered leaving my home in Romania for one in London, before jeopardizing my life, I was human. I was a respectable human in fact, but not without the occasional ill-intentioned move. I remember the last mistake like that I made all too well.Dracula's backstory- My Last Mistake oneshot2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
A party had just ended in my prominent Romanian home, the castle built in the early thirteen hundreds when my family came to this area of the country, my grandfather relinquishing his father's surname Tepes and becoming the first Dracula. We had flourished since then. Every man had beautiful women to his name and a single son. I had yet to wield a son but had three lovely wives. I had faith in them to bring a child to continue the family.
I bade the guests goodbye and went to relax by the warm fire, taking a nice deep breath. The castle was delightfully warm even though it was dead winter. The warmth of the people, the guests, had left the room like a Turkish bath. But soon I heard a knock on th

We didn't care about,
Weight or about not having a date.
We didn't care,
How hideous our faces looked,
When we first woke up in the morning.
We wouldn't try and hide it with make up.
When we were young,
We didn't stress over life,
We didn't know that one day we'll all die.
And maybe I liked it better that way,
Maybe I wish that I was five.
Just so I could once again feel alive.
To be able to see the world,
See all of it's colors so vibrant and bright.
Fall in love with sunsets,
And stay up just so I can see the sunrise.
And watch it wash away the dark.
To be able to see your smile
And call it the best kind of art.
Because growing up,
Feels so cold.
I was never told..
That one day I'd end up like this,
And all of its sweet bliss.

under a gray sky day,
with cold stone hard
against my supple
I am my own tragedy queen
beneath a dead star night,
watched by millions
of flickering eyes,
there is laughter in the dark
and too soon I realize
it is mine.
Among the reeds
where the wind blows low
and high, there is only
wearing my thorny crown.
How can I help but smile
when the dead come to dance
upon my grave
while yet I still live
upon the cool damp earth.
It is a welcome serenity
to hold my breath
and feel as if I am drowning
beneath the water
which falls from the sky,
and I float upward
leaving my body behind.
There is only sorrow here
lingering in the space
between the living and the dead
but we embrace it
as an elevated joy
that only we know.
I will sit enthroned
among these spirits
naked and cold
as they chant in their ritual
bath, and from the waters
I will emerge to dawn
their burial cloth.

As I sped through the river's current.
You cuddled me, hugged me,
I'm finally sure you love me,
And yet I manage to push you away.
You know my hands are freezing cold,
Did I warn you that my heart's the same?
Cold hands, warm heart, I've been told,
I guess for me, it's not the same.
I didn't believe in angels until I met you,
I know you're one.
But not the kind with wings or halos.
Your aura is woven with beams from the sun,
Yet I'm a dark creature, dwelling in shadows.
I'm sorry I got mad at you for a stupid little thing,
And I know my words sting.
I know my hands are freezing, and my heart's the same.
But I love you with a passion, and in my heart is a flame.

I'll wallow in my own.
And burnt out choices.

The fingers of the hand that hold
My faintest dying hope
Are stained with dirt from the climb
Of our slippery slope.
Your malice fits me oh so well.
Just like a bloody glove.
That nails across a blackened board,
and sounds like dying love.
Words that never spell the right
Letters that I read.
Are lost between the bitter bridge
Of avarice and greed.
I'll never have the time you see,
For your pretty pain.
Your loathing's just perfect for me

Stronger than any seam sewn
Carried upon the wings of a dove,
The only love I've ever known.
Like a bird, my heart takes flight,
Whoosh! Into the sky!
My love soars higher, to new heights,
This feeling shall never die!
Oh, the stars up above,
They gaze down at him!
The only one that I love,
His heart I wish to win!
And his hair, like shining gold,
Puts the sun to shame!
This beauty worth more than anything sold,
My heart cannot be tamed!
Oh his eyes, an icy blue!
With his ocean gaze,
He has a heart so true,
Brighter than full moon's phase!
Proud as a peacock, smart as an owl,
So many talents he has!
My soul emits a wolf's howl,
Hoping his love shall last!
His aura seems to heal my scars,
With him, I'm not alone,
But until I confess, I'll watch from afar,
The only love I've ever known.

With one simple command, he could destroy an entire village. He was so powerful, either people respected him or feared him. England didn't care, it was their fear and suffering that made him feel alive. He wouldn't have it any other way, he couldn't see anyone else with this type of power. They couldn't take it, no, no one else could. Of course, the townspeople would talk amongst themselves, whispering to their friends. Most people thought that he was abusing his power, he wasn't right for the position anyway. Arthur didn't mind, so what if people talked? People would always spread nasty lies about him. Why? Because they were jealous. They wanted his power, they wanted the wealth, the admiration... Who wouldn't want this lifestyle?

Francis was used to late nights, nights when Gilbert, Antonio and himself would go out in the early, beautifully crimson tinged, sky; and refused to leave unless they stumbled over their own feet, stone drunk, giggling like a group of school girls by the late hours of the glistening night.
Or those warmly filled days when he'd be caressing his newest love under the summer blossoms. Whilst velvet petals, beautifully twirling with the sweet wind, he'd be placing kisses upon his love with cherry lips. Velvet petals would glide and land gracefully upon the grassy ground, letting pinks and purples pattern the park's greenery.
However, he was not used to staying awake, when glorious sleep was an option.
