Nosferatu's Lament...Sitting in the towerMore Like This
For a century or more,
Watching dust and cobwebs gather
Upon the walls and floor
As the sun and moon flit swiftly
Past the window high above,
Where the skulking, black-winged
Vampyr-Bat hath seized
The snow-white dove...
I used to slip into the town
When the midnight bell did toll,
To walk among the living folk
And watch each simple soul
Go about their quiet lives;
I did not wish to kill--
But the horrid Thirst compelled me,
And each night a heart I'd still...
But even Vampires get old and tired,
I stir not from my tomb
I feed on dreams and memories,
As I ponder my doom.
Brother Widmo's ConfessionI was born in the Year of the Plague;More Like This
Mother looked on my face and went mad,
While the midwife cut her own throat.
I was raised by the monks of St. Vitus;
They kept me safe, a curséd innocent,
Hidden in the shadowed cloisters...
There were nuns at St. Vitus, as well;
I used to watch a novice, lovely girl,
Her name was Genevieve.
She was not afraid of my pale sharp face;
My pointed ears made her laugh,
And my long, long fingers she held in her hand.
I tried to kiss her but it went all wrong--
My teeth sank into her white throat,
And the sweetest golden taste filled my mouth!
The monks were most upset;
Widmo, they said, we dreaded this,
Your father's blood is showing...
They locked me in my cell;
And tried to exorcise the curse--
It didn't go so well...
I was frightened;
The Bell, the Book, the Candle burned!
I cried out, unknown words---
My brothers screamed in fear;
Their faces twisted, went ghastly pale,
Their fingers grew, like mine.
We are a family now;

Medusa's Deadliest Weapon...More Like This
Perseus, don't cut off my head,
The glittering Gorgon slyly said;
She shook her serpentine locks, and Lo!
Golden tresses from head to toe
Slithered down her sinuous frame---
The hero froze, we cannot blame
Perseus for dropping his sharp sword;
In his burning ear she whispered words
Of sweet, seductive, dark delight...
Another Hero lost, that night!
