Love/Horror Poem: ALIVE

Posted: June 24, 2014 in Horror Poetry

Knees quivering, heart jumping,
Pulse racing, soul leaping…

That was how she felt before she saw HIM…
The thought that she might even get to see him,
made her lips tremble.
Fear and excitement, felt all at once.
She still could feel alive inside,
even if her heart froze in passion.

She caught a swift glimpse of her reflection,
in a rustic oval antique mirror.
Looking back at herself was a young gaunt figure,
with long jet-black hair and crimson highlights
that flowed over her narrow shoulders in waves.
She flashed a pearly white fanged smile
that sat upon a pale ivory face.

Leaning in closer to the mirror,
she studied her reflection
to see that the innocent twinkle of her once blue eyes was gone.
Those cold blue eyes began to slide into a bloody dark red.

Mouth watering, she thirsted for life.
Although, her heart no longer pounded profusely.
It still troubled her, even in death,
for a love that she couldn’t have.

Stretching out her long fingers, sharp claw-like nails extracted.
She ran them down the white painted walls,
leaving behind scratch marks and
screamed in agony
Passion that froze her heart in time,
for a love she couldn’t have.

Knees quivering, heart jumping,
pulse racing, soul leaping.
The thoughts made her feel alive inside.
Passion that froze her heart in time,
for a love she couldn’t have.

Again, she veered at her reflection,
watching her eyes glaze over in a deep pool of red.
Red fury, red love, red hate…
Red love.
Passion,
freezing her heart in time.

With no exceptions,
she decided to set out.
Dressing in skin black tights,
and a see through black and white knitted top.
Black stilettos and painted pink lips.
Mouth watering, she thirsted for life,
Smiling with her pearly white fangs.

Into a building, she knew he stayed,
she walked inside,
opening the glass doors, in search of his presence.
Passing through the crowded halls,
she caught scents of other powerful perfumed souls…
Although, she thirsted for his life only.

Knees quivering, heart jumping,
Pulse racing, soul leaping,
Trembling lips…
the very thought…
Mouth watering,
at the very sight of him.

Nervously shaking, she walks up.
Her eyes fixated upon his tall fit muscular handsome figure.
His musk cologne, leaving a sweet trail under her nose.

Closer yet, hands shaking,
taps him on his broad shoulder.
Turning around, his sparkling blue eyes meet hers…
Although, her gleaming once loving blue eyes are no longer innocent.
They slide back into a bloody death red…

She grabs his face in the palm of her pale ivory hand,
while the other claws down his back,
ripping his blue dress shirt.
Pulling him in for a powerful gripping kiss.

Mouth watering, she thirsted for his life only.
Astounded and overcome by her sudden power,
he gives in.

Red fury, red love, red hate…
Red love.
PASSION.
Her heart fr-
BEATS.

She still feels alive inside.
