Outside Dracula's Castle - Poem by Justin Gildow

I can see I'm still so far away from it
I'm still so far away from the castle

I've got a long way to go
To reach the entrance

Outside Dracula's Castle
As I walk along
I can tell that the trees have lost all their
And I can tell that the trees are looking
quite dead
Yet that doesn't stop the bats from hanging
upside down on their branches

Walking along
The bats swoop down from the branches
Ready to attack me
As well as the spirits and cursed worms

I grab a hold of my whip
And destroy all of the creatures around me
Once that's done
I continue on

Zombies sulk, lag, and walk their way towards
But I defeat them
The same goes for the dead knights
Who are on the lookout tonight

It's been quite a walk to get to the castle gates
But I'm almost there
I just hope I'm not too late
This much I know
The night is young
And it's been brutal
So far

    did u make it into the tower?
    have your cross and wooden stake ready
    bcecause the count is a light sleeper.
    he waits for you, the cries of the zombies
    and bats have alerted him to an intruder.
    only precious minutes remain til sunset
    and theres no turnng bac now, u are on
    a colision course with the destiny of your soul
    triumph or eternal damnation.
