poem

Vampiress by Wayne Sharrocks
This was penned for the U.S Film Premiere of 'Revival of Darkness' (which had a themed Masquerade Ball) & was read out at midnight, just before the guests unmasked...




A life too cursed for day
She awaits the decadent dark
A cloak of beauty drowns her sighs
This Angel in disguise...
 
The walls of her heart may crumble
As she feels her dreams unfurl
The conclusion ever nearer
As midnight chimes her goal...
 
The only time she can reveal herself
Is under nature's lunar light
And as the mask slips from visage
The moon offers her respite...
