Nothing living stays for long,
A town of the dead.

Chews lightly on your shoulder,
Hoping you will wake.

Dreadful sounds of wailing
Ringing out in the night;
Lost souls in torment.

For a chance to get free,
To escape this Hell.

A WEREWOLF AMONG US (II)
Mournful howling comes
From an upstairs bedroom: a
Werewolf among us.

ANCIENT BURIAL GROUNDS
Evil lurks in crypts
In ancient burial grounds,
Eager soon to feed.

ANCIENT GRAVEYARDS
Dark figures lurk in
Ancient, overgrown graveyards,
Very few dare tread.

BAT-WINGED FIENDS
Evil bat-winged fiends
Creeping through a graveyard,
Hunt upon the mourners.

A BAT-WINGED MONSTER
A bat-winged monster
Feeding off the living,
Sups on tender young throats.

BAT WINGS
Bat wings on the sill
Red eyes peer through your window,
Death lurking outside.

BECKONING FINGERS
Pale fingers beckon
From a dark corner, where
Unseen demons lurk.

BLOOD HUNGER
Blood-hunger sharpened
By millennia underground;
Appetite stirs.

THE BLOOD QUEST
Through the deeper woods
Lope unseen atrocities,
Questing after blood.

BLOOD THIRST
Hot liquid flows
From severed arteries,
Savoured like vintage wine.

BREAKFAST TIME
Ancient sleepers wake
From a thousand-year slumber,
Eager now to feed.

BRUTALLY SEVERED JUGULARS
Jugulars severed
Brutally, by graveyard fiends,
Lusting after blood.

BRUTALLY TORN THROATS (06/11/2010)
Blood flowing from throats
Brutally torn by demons,
To feed their hunger.

BY BLOOD ALONE (II)
Fed on blood only
They live through untold years,
Needing no other food.

Cadaverous creatures
Dripping fetid ichor,
Lurch at human prey.

CANINES SINKING DEEP (05/11/2010)
Pale-faced strangers lurk
Awaiting passing humans,
Canines sinking deep!

THE CHASE IS ON (I)
Angry canine teeth
Chase you through your nightmares,
Then catch you when you wake.

CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT (II)
Vampire children prowling
Through the dark night streets,
Hungry for their first kill.

COLD, REFLECTIVE FACES
Cold, reflective faces
On stiffly shambling bodies,
Lurching after you.

COMPULSION
Need for human blood
Drives evil compulsions,
Fuels inhuman desires.

CORPSE-LIKE FIGURES WRITHE (I)
Corpse-like figures writhing
Half crazed with hunger, caused
By the need for blood.

CORPSE-LIKE CREATURES WRITHE (II)
Corpse-like creatures writhe
Half crazed with hunger, caused
By the need for blood.

CORPSES WRITHE IN AGONY
Corpses writhe around
in agony; when stakes are
driven through their hearts.

THE CRAVING
An unknown bat’s bite
Produces strange symptoms:
A dark craving for blood.

CREATURE OF DARKNESS
Creature of darkness
Living in shadowy niches,
Hungry for hot blood.

CREATURE OF THE SHADOWS (I)
Creature of shadows
Wary of lethal sunlight,
Feasting after dark.

CREATURE OF THE SHADOWS (II)
Creature of shadows
Wary of bright sunlight,
Feeding after dark.

CRIES OF TERROR
Loud cries of terror
As vampires lurch toward you,
Aiming for your throat.

DANGER SLINKING EVER NEARER
Sleepers unaware
Of danger slinking nearer,
Soon the sleepers die.

DARK FIGURES HOVER
Dark figures hover
Outside a bedroom window,
Hoping soon to feed.

A DARK FIGURE WAITING
A dark figure waits
Outside a bedroom window,
Hoping soon to feed.

A DARK HERITAGE
A curse inherited
From evil ancestors,
Makes you walk the night.

THE DARK LADY
The dark lady nears:
The mistress of the night,
Eager to taste warm blood.

DARK SHADOWS LENGTHEN
Dark shadows lengthen
Becoming dreadful figures,
Slashing tender throats.

A DARK SHADOW WAITING
A dark figure waits
Outside a bedroom window,
Hoping soon to feast.
