Vampire Sadness : A Nonet

He was  her constant companion

Draining  her life’s blood more each day

Friends, family  pushed  slowly  away

Lost was she from the  first

Crook of his finger

She became his


No more

    “Eyes wide shut.”
    I like the way you called it: Vampire Sadness
    Your poem reminds me of a song, it’s a catchy tune so it takes a bit to understand that the theme is about love that is actually a form of control by the other person, just like in your poem.

        Willow, you are much more sharp and quick than me, it took me over a year to see that in the song; but when I did, I no longer had my eyes shot out of my head and my heart ripped from my chest! 😉

        I have had experience of this kind of relationship, so I recognise it. It sounds like you have too. We need to keep our eyes open ! xxxx
