'Innocent Bride' - Poem by Kelly Seale

The door is open, won't you come in?
Don't you be frightened, don't you be shy,
I step out of the shadows, smiling as you take my hand,
Yes my Love, that's it! Look deep... deep into my eyes-
Now, let's begin.

What a beautiful red dress, and your hair, all done up!
The moonlight, dancing on your painted face-
Ah, magic moments, smoldering fires,
Spellbound memories, insatiable desires.
Yes, secret fantasies await you, my Innocent Bride-
There's nowhere else to go,
There's nowhere else to hide.

This is your sanctuary, your midnight hiding place,
I inhale the sweet aroma of your hair,
My lips lingering for only a moment,
Just before I lightly kiss your lips, your face.
My decadent breath upon the nape of your neck,
My lips, oh so wet, with such anticapation-
As my Vampyre teeth, gently bite down.
A soft moan, a sigh, escapes your lips,
I can feel your heartbeat pounding,
throbbing through my fingertips.

Suddenly, you become aware of your fear,
You want to turn and run, you start to scream-
but there's nobody else to hear.
It is then that you realize-
That it's useless, you can't break my spell,
The Door slams shut!
Locked, are the Gates of Hell.

And as our hearts beat as one, as life seeps from your veins,
Your soon lifeless body, will be all that remains.
-Yes, I'm feeling quite giddy,
-Yes, I'm feeling quite high,
I drink up your soul,
Till your well is dry.

Lifeless is your body, it's as cold as my breath.
Just a shell is all that is there,
A soulless shell, is all that is left.
So gently, I lay you down, so sweet,
A tender last kiss-
With bitter envy, just a little regret.
You see my love, I cannot follow you,
I cannot join you just yet.
For my love is lost in eternal damnnation,
In Hell's eternity, I'll take my last breath-
And my secret lies within only me,
For my Innocent Bride
Is Death.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Death is nothingness, loneliness, darkness. So why have I flirted with Death all my life? Death is seduction into the abyss.

    Thank you Lisa for such intutive review! I am glad this made you delve into darkness with me and inspire your inner-most secret thoughts, your passion, your poison. (smiling)

    Death is truly seductive...which is probably why I'm such an adrenaline junkie, haha! If I were a vampire though, I'd want to give me love immortality too so could share that world together. It's more realistic though if the ending is bittersweet. Ahh, you've truly made me think & given me inspiration! ! ! Thanks :) (Report)Reply
