Crime, Paranormal, and Horror Writing

Dream Girl

She floats
Outside my window.
Calls softly
In my dreams.
Tells me I am
Not alone.
Black dress fluttering
All about her.
Glowing face of
Finest silk.
Watching me through
Shimmery veil.
Scratches window with
Sharpened nails.
Bright eyes begging,
Long tongue licking
Caressing blackened
Rosebud lips.
Waking in a
Dreaming world,
I open window
She flies

Vision of beauty.
A waning moon.
Drawn from cracks
Inside my mind.
Beckons me with
Long sleeve flapping.
To creaky windowsill.
She jumps
Into darkness.
Sounds of flight.
I follow
Desperate to belong.
Gusts of hope
Blow by.
I jump.
I fall.
The path bleeds red.
As smiling sweetly,
She swoops
To feed.

Victim of a gothic vampire. Sublime piece. Love the way her mind is tricked into following then falling. Genius. 

A follow up poem would be good, on the victim being given the chance of being a vamp or dying? by Nick Armbrister
