Encounter With A Vampire


My eyes closed for a short spell as I recounted the following:

Oh the howls of a cruel remorseless wind bellowing at thy brethren.

Kleptomania sweeps along a moving shadow stealing souls.

Yet for some there will be no equanimity.

Gnosticism warns of incubus.

Sounds of claymores clashing unyielding.

Alas not one ounce of compassion.

Blood flowing scented molecules abound.

The lone black figure sparkles a fang of brilliant white flashes past anomalous.

Just a shimmer of subconscious awakes.

Legs now fill with osmium.

Uncanny spirits hover above.

Intuition spells out danger.

Bilious takes a hold then ponderously stumbles.

Yowl in terror at the supernatural aura.

For a Vampire tyrannical crossed my path.

I’m reposting my poem “Encounter With A Vampire” ~ Penned in just under an hour during 2010. My normal style of writing is to use short simple words that I can spell. This poem was written as a pure excuse to stretch my comfort zone. Just digging it up again as my acknowledgement for World Poetry Day  ~ March 21st

Alexis Rhone Fancher  reading her explicit “Underwater” poem on the above podcast. We all have underwater thoughts from the past and like the rolling tides they come and go. Yet come sunset we can all sit above the water and lie that we don’t have a care in the world ~~~~~

Sweeping Steps

Sweeping steps

Awaiting letters never sent

Sweeping steps

Never sending letters most loved

Sweeping steps

Posting life away

Sweeping steps

Almost swept away in a letter

Sweeping steps

Now posting sweeping steps

Silent Crow

Posted in arty farty, Birds Of A Feather, observation, Poem, Poetry with tags , , , on December 19, 2014 by lkthayer


Sometimes we crow about being up there in the clouds

Sometimes it’s just crowing with a bleeding heart

Sometimes the earth is scorching every cell under foot

Sometimes just sometimes there is always that silent crow

Very shady
Legs parting for you
You turn me on
Sitting there so sweet
