Awesome-Vampire-Wallpapers

Her spirit boreal, as though blue ice;
Echo: Dice
The piteous men who paid the price.
Echo: Vice

She haunted with allure and charm;
Echo: Arm
Aghast they stood in strange alarm.
Echo: Harm

Encompassed in hues of velvet black;
Echo: Clack
Who shall now lead – afar from track
Echo: Shack

Oh penetrating, cold predator’s eyes;
Echo: Cries
Upon life that fades, flickers and dies.
Echo: Rise

She stole a kiss – blood stained lips
Echo: Grips
Beneath a penumbral lunar eclipse.
Echo: Snips

Atlast the dead awake – arise
Echo: Prize
Terror wears a thin disguise.
Echo: Guise

    Oh, echo verse worked so very effectively to convey a frightening mood. And, yes, terror does wear a thin disguise. It is closer to us than we know! Boo!

    I specially like the ending verses:

    At last the dead awake – arise
    Echo: Prize
    Terror wears a thin disguise.
    Echo: Guise

    This is really good, Sanaa. I’ve not heard of the echo verse so will have to look into that. I found it very effective in adding to the tone of your Vampire poem. Frighteningly good!

  5. The painting is extra chilling of itself; been awhile since I used echo verse; I agree it is extra effective in this piece. Something about how the echo changes the word that really is a statement on communicative exchanges.

    The echo was so effective in creating terror.. The short echoes turn it manacing and dark, the terror laces with lust is so very effective

  8. Myths mirror culture realities now
    still.. and interestingly still now.. now..
    enough.. the rising fascination with
    vampires in heart of art
    mirrors science studies
    almost perfect in
    practice.. of declining
    yes empirically declining
    measurable empathy
    among college age
    young adults.. around
    30 percent in the last
    several decades.. a cold
    heart is the myth for
    vampires.. zombies..
    and werewolves..
    who deal
    in fear..
    pain.. and
    hate.. instead
    of all creativity
    associated with
    human LOVE..
    so in other
    words.. ‘Leave
    it to Beaver’
    dies a cold
    death Alive..;)
