Treasure Island

Vikram G. Aarella

Return of Count Dracula

When the clouds descend on the land
Covering every tree and every inch of sand
Flesh and blood is what dark forces demand
And the count holds on to his command.

In the darkness of night when sunrays retire
Emerges the sharp teethed vampire
Sucking out life against one’s desire
Dracula has unleashed the evil of his empire

Army of wolves howling in the forest
Lying any faith in god to rest
Putting every man’s courage to test
Has come Dracula, the blood sucking pest.

The last of the living evil
Someone should stand up to him and kill
Waiting for that person with strong will
Our lives are at Dracula's mercy until.

    Really good ending rhyms, and easy to read. The fact that it is a horror poem gives it an extra plus. One of the best poems I has read.
