Gothic Melody

Poem By Kailee Williams

The sounds of a Vampire stalking its prey
and a werewolf crying to the moon
are music to my ears each night and day,
hoping that I may join them soon.
My dreams are haunted with visions of the undead,
forced to walk the earth for all eternity.
Their eyes tell cursed stories without a word being said,
yet I yearn for what is just out of reach: immortality.
The Vampire's life is one of hiding,
never to reveal themselves to a mortal soul.
Hissing and cringing away from the sun so blinding,
and returning to their coffins, dark and cold.
Listen to their desperate cries,
such a sweet Gothic melody.
Aware of every pathetic mortal's lies;
Oh, how I long for immortality.

Night Angels

They walk and hide in the night.
Living in shadows and shame, fearing the light.
They are beautiful, clever, and tart;
Their pale skin as cold as their heart

A Vampire's Love

Living alone in darkness;
My lust for life grows less and less.
Eternity is my only master.
The sweet taste of your blood makes my heart race faster.

Rosa Della Morte

Love is the brightest pink of the purest pink rose
and the softest music played from afar.
Its taste is as sweet as chocolate-covered strawberries.
It smells like the air after a fresh rainstorm

Suicide Thoughts

I'm looking back on these last few years.
Why aren't you here to calm my tears?
Blood from my wrist stains the ugly carpet on my floor.
I take on last glance at my closed bedroom door.

How Could You?

How could you...
make me smile with a single glance
and make me shiver as we danced,
only to rip out my fucking heart
