Blood Bank

A.W. Nutter

My breath suspended in the air
The forest adorned with frost
Fleeing from the Devils lair
Carrying a soul already lost

Wandering in a maze of emotions
I hear their strained voices calling
Pleas of concern an artful allusion
Must remain hidden until morning

Gazing upon my open wounds
The scent of blood, I’m betrayed
Captured, sent back to my tomb
A favorite slave quickly reclaimed

My ankles and wrists firmly secured
Cleaned and prepared for the feast
Thirteen souls the master’s acquired
Placed in line, awaiting the beast

A single finger points in my direction
Two pints of blood quickly devoured
Dracula feeding during his resurrection
His thirst for life temporarily acquired

Never again will I escape the master
In Dracula’s manor is where I dwell
Private stock, providing blood forever
Condemned to exist in this living hell

    And while you are there kick some butts ... Let the body parts fly like words everywhere, we wait to eat the flesh of beauty.

    A very suspenseful and somewhat chilling poem about the acquisition of lost souls. Great poem for halloween, Anthony, and I think this will do very well in the contest! Love, Carolyn
