She senses before she sees The manicured nails - the elegant fingers Holding out the hundred dollar bills - enticingly - so temptingly A generous nights takings of busking here In one proffered hand She grabs at it petrified it might be an illusion Evaporating in a puff of smoke Fingers hold it back, teasingly Compelling eye contact She looks up sceptically Dark eyes meet her aqua blues, sparking a sort of affinity ‘Eyes are the window of one’s soul’- so it is said in all sincerity But the magnetic dark eyes of her enticer are fathomless in their intensity His type she has encountered before - money for favours Well she is no novice - a living after all - a girl has to make And his generous offer rivals his devilish good looks But she senses a darkness favouring the energy emanating A cold shiver runs through her veins like someone just walked on her grave Fear ripples down her spine akin to a stroking finger chilled in ice The spell he casts foreboding The calmness of the night has taken flight In its haste to set the macabre scene Mesmerising are the eyes that bore into hers Projected thoughts furtively slip into her mind Infiltrating it like a slithery snake Bringing with it forbidden thoughts of desire She falls into the inky black abyss Succumbing to heady dark passionate conceptualization However the chilling message is coherent This is not a mere opportunistic one night stand That he desires This is more - so much more This is taboo concupiscence unleashed This is her life in exchange for what? Her life for immortality? Surely not! Yet his eyes eloquently convey it all The hunger so unconcealed - so transparently flagrant To yield to darkness Satisfying his appetite for Death of a different nature? Obliteration of life as she knows it to be Tenebrous Immortality in exchange for her blood A prelude to his finale of taking her soul And then a metamorphosis From Prey to Predator

Exceptional imagery Maria. It is always interesting to read a feminine point of view in an alluring piece such as this.

My dear and talented friend Maria, you certainly know how to captivate my rapt attention and imagination with your poetic spell that your wondrous words cast over me. A dark, enticing and bewitching poem of blood-lust of the sensual and immortal kind so superbly written and wonderfully enjoyed. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

I wasn't sure you would like this one Susan, after all it is a little bit 'creepy', not my usual style i am told, still it was a challenge, and I went for it. That a talented and truly gifted poet like yourself has recognised it for what it is , merely an artist expression, is real music to my ears.

This was worth waiting for, Maria ... an excellent dark, compelling delivery. The allure of immortality is indeed very tempting, but it comes at a price! ~ Warm regards // paul

I don't think I could ever write dark stuff Demetrios, somehow can not get that 'creep factor' through it.This was originally for a contest, not PS, but I abandoned the idea. Thank you ever so much for your wonderful comment though, I'll take it dearest friend ....Maria xxx

Excellent. A different kind of lust. You have penned well. Thanks for sharing it.

Wow, Maria, once you start reading this you can't stop, it really draws you in. I think I've know a few women who could have been vampires...well they were quite dark and mysterious anyway. Very nicely written! John

Thanks for visiting Vijay and for being one of my staunch supporters. Just by way of explanation the poem is inspired by the 'Twilight' movie series and the song clip. It's all about being bitten by so called Vampires - Hope they don't exist. Lol! ...Maria

Foreboding, atmospheric and mesmerizing. Noir rendered with an expert hand. I really enjoyed reading this!

Lol! The taxi drivers are not a very lovable bunch, that's for sure. There are some good ones, but many are a constant thorn in the side for even the locals. So if it's any consolation, Maria, whatever treatment you experienced was not because you were a tourist :))

Thanks so much Bernard for your visit and your comments. It's a bit hectic here but I will come and visit you page soon. PS I love your country HKG - been there several times - (don't like the taxi drivers though) ...Maria

Very very dark Maria, a different kind of lust... You expressed it very well... There are probably a lot of men like this, not vampires, but like vampires preying on innocent fair maidens....

Thanks for your comment Si - Now don't you go having nightmares - Vampires are not real - You won't be bitten - I'll keep silent about it but I would keep the door locked if I was you - you never know about these legends as there may be some truth in tales as they say ...Maria

Inky black abyss ooo... Sounds so morbid but so exciting at the same time! I was always the fan of the monsters which is what I did get later in life! But to have an Edward or Jake would be worth the price lol! Wonderfully dark and sexy Maria loved this very much! Brenda
