AN EMPIRE OF VAMPIRES

The dark alleys
and the underground,
where evil lurks
they’re to be found.
Their might and power
is legendary;
gained and retained
by visceral savagery.
For they thrive on blood
these men nor beasts;
a passing innocent
their favoured feast.
But they hide well
this beastly affinity
behind a façade
of gentile nobility.
Harden your heart
to their mesmeric beauty
for it surely deceives
in its contrived purity.
Close your eyes
to that beguiling stare
that ignites in you
an answering flare.
For it will beckon you
by the pale moonlight,
subsequent wraiths
these Lords of the night.
Defy my warning
and it will transpire,
you too will be one
of an empire of vampires.
