The Curse (The Beginning)

Six years ago I wrote a 6-piece vampire poetry series based on the Anne Rice novel, “Interview With The Vampire.” The series is written from the point of view of Louis, a recluse vampire, and expresses his  inner conflict to adapt with his new transformation. It also focuses on his interactions with Lestat (his maker), and his beloved, Claudia. This is the prologue:

The Curse (The Beginning)

A sweet perfume fills my wake.

My senses intensified.

Though this is no dream

But a cold mortal place.

Waiting for reminiscence,

Though I find none.

I am in the unknown.

Oblivious to all around me.

But conscious of this new self.

Heart beats faster,

Vision magnified,

Though my touch is not defined.

I am invisible now.

Something I have never wanted.

No sign of my captor

But clearly left with his mark.

I am wounded.

Paralyzed by a simple inhumane gesture.

And here I lie.

An entity,

Wavering in the crimson light.

I have lost my identity.

No more shall people remember what I was.

I have lost everything.

Aimlessly wandering the streets.

Hiding in shadows,

A place that I once was afraid of.

I am pale,

Not by fear this time.

With cracked lips as if dried out by the sun.

And this thirst is so unbearable.

Uncertain if I can endure such discomfort

For eternity.

I lay here motionless

As a dark silhouette distorts my vision.

Overcome with blackness,

I am paralyzed until dusk.
