He’s a black-hearted rose. A cunning devil in black and red. A blood sucking vampire, of the rusted-out and dead. Evil lusts for darkness to carry out its deeds and once the sun nods off to sleep Dracula seeks insidious shadows in which to meet his needs. Dark cape around his neck, no ragged dress for him and, piercing eyes aflame, he’ll glaze you with his looks, ’til he knows that you are hooked. A through charmer, hearts shudder at his name. In the beginning he will wine you, he will dine you. He’ll fill you to the brim with soft moonlight and wishes and then, commit his sins. He will take you by the hand, arm out stretched, will draw you in. Till your head is in the clouds and heart a rolling thunder, with his spell he’ll pull you under. He’ll kiss your eyes, your cheeks and, whisper in your ear all the tender loving words he knows you long to hear. Your bridges, your walls will all collapse as he’ll straighten to full height,  drag you ‘neath his cape and… still beneath his spell… his teeth will bare and soon the sharpeness of their blade will sink right into you, and like a rag doll that has swooned you will be, until he’s made the final kill, partook and had his fill .

And once he takes your blood, well then…he has your soul.

As Halloween is fast approaching, I chose a scary theme for my Sunday Whirl ‘wordle effort. You will all know of course this is loosely based on the Dracula tales written by author Bram Stoker in 1897. Dracula was based on Vlad the Impaler. I chose Christopher Lee as my Count Dracula because over the years he played the part in movies more times than any other actor.

  1. A good use of the wordle, DayDreamer. Perfect for Halloween. As soon as I saw you were writing about Dracula, I was sure you would bring up Vlad the Impaler. You never miss an opportunity to display history. I’ve always thought that he was worse that Dracula. At least Dracula’s kill was reasonably quick and clean. Vlad has to be the most horrible monster from history.

  2. Didn’t see a “like” button, but I surely DID like it! And just in time for Halloween. GREAT use of the words, too!

  3. he is scary alright… though now, I can just laugh about it….. and C. Lee actor is the best of them Dracula movies ~

  4. A good scary theme and the words fitted in so very well!! I’m not a fan of horror and brrrrr!! scary!! My daughter’s theme for the blood donation camp at college was Dracula……”Starve the Vampire, Donate blood” 😛

  5. The cat is going to have to go get a metal collar for his neck now, don’t want him draining me like some cow. Just watched a rendition of Dracula the other day, as The Librarian 3 was on my way.

  6. Dracula is my favorite classic horror tale. I love the story’s unfolding. Thank you for your exploration of the count. Bwaaa haa haa ha ha!
