Count Dracula


Ages Go By - Poem by Count Dracula

Ages have gone by
roaming as I have always done
yet nothing is the same
time changes
yet I remain
a frail man
alone to walk this shallow earth
broken and cast out from the womb
feeding on innocence and decay
on a night like tonight
I lose all humanity and hope
as my prey, does neither
but welt in my arms
man and beast am I
and vengeance is my thirst
a blood rush for the ages gone by
never quenched or made right
so for ever more I roam
the broken man
ages go by........................

    So lucid and fluent filled with shadows of life, dark and poignant. This darkness leaves its mark everywhere, upon every body. Captured and imprisoned we are in life’s clutches. Your poetry spreads sunshine. (Report)Reply

    The title of this of this very well penned and poignant poem caught my attention since my Birthday was yesterday June 28th. Sitting alone yesterday in my Chamber of Thoughts I realized that every year is a chapter of my life no knowing when will the last chapter written, just fully the writing, hoping to leave my legacy behind! Thank you for sharing,10+++ Love and Peace for always! ... (Report)Reply

    the fate of every vampire,
    to roam only the darkest corners of the earth as ages go by
    ' yet nothing is the same
    time changes
    yet I remain
    a frail man '

    strugging with what's left of his own humanity,
    the count expresses a trace of remorse
    in this concise yet revealing confession
