Oh my love you have forgotten me
The nights of passion gone
It is her face only that you see
To you alone, my heart and soul i have sworn
Chasing after a dream
Of a long dead heart
Can you not hear my soul scream?
The longer we are apart
All that i have given is lost
As you seduce another
Does she know the cost?
Of taking you as a lover
For you I live in hell
Feasting on the blood of mortals
Totally caught in your dark spell
One of your dark devils
But you turn away
Leaving it all behind
Reaching into the forbidden light of day
A monster, now suddenly refined
My soul forever tainted
Distorted by you my lover
I am now an evil that can’t be sated
Abandoned by my dark father
Her hair shines in the sunshine
Far from flickering candlelight
Does she know you were once mine?
As into the night you entice
Hide the devil behind the smile
The monster deep inside
So easy to seduce and beguile
Your new chosen bride
I can sense her growing fears
As she begins to fall
Can you at all feel my tears?
As you start to enthrall
She has captured your soul
Breaking our century old bond
Your heart and mind hers whole
Taking you away, beyond...
Oh my love you have forgotten me
Why is yet then that i still yearn
For the way it used to be
Hoping uselessly for the night you might return

So haunting, sorrowful, and beautiful! You took the classic, gothic horror vampire and all of its classical romance and nightly aura wrapped around the age-old tale of betrayal. Very well done, I was enticed from start to finish. Bravo!

Linda Rogers from Minnesota on December 04, 2010:
Nice job on this dark poetry of love and loss. I've had a few ex loves that were just like vampires. They sucked all the life out of me. Hee Hee
K.A.E Grove (author) from Australia on December 03, 2010:
oh my, talk about leaving me speechless!
dear sir, with comments like that I may just have to chain you up in my cellar and keep you near to feed the large ego you are so wonderfully building up :)
epigramman on December 03, 2010:
......well you gotta know how much I love this dark stuff and this dark poetic side in you - you ain't no nighthag - or even a nighmare - you're just simply a
nightdream because you write like one - and I'm bitten - I mean , I'm smitten!!!!
K.A.E Grove (author) from Australia on December 02, 2010:

saddlerider1 on December 02, 2010:
Twisted souls entwined forever more their blood like a bond to eternal love. They share each others conquests and dominance yet are one in eternity.
Although theirs is pain of mutual respect, sealed with a lingering kiss in the night.
Lovely poem, it smacked of pain and love in equal measure:0) Rated UP and Up some more:0) I caressed all your awesome and beautiful buttons....
K.A.E Grove (author) from Australia on November 28, 2010:
