Rose are black
Violets are violence
I’ll tie you up to the rack
And gag you with my silence.

I am Goth

Come step into my life
Step into my lair
I’ll dress you all in black
And even dye your hair

I love rock music
Turn it up loud
When you are a Gothic like me
The lyrics will make you proud

Step into the darkness
Say good bye to the light
We live in an eternity
Were every day is night

I know you think I’m freaky
Go analyze me
But in my heart I know
A Gothic is what I want to be

Dark Love

This Night as Eternity
Night falls upon the forest
The stars shine bright
Revealing the haunted masks
Of the dead souls taking flight

Look beyond the windowsill
Watch as they fly
Aurora surrounding them
Makes you want to cry

Close your eyes
And go to sleep
I’ll protect you
So don’t weep

Oh, beyond your smile
Oh, sleep tonight
Oh, the haunted mile
Oh, the love filled tile

Into the night sky they leave
Bringing light unto the fern
They died because of love
And for love they will return

The world is brighter
Now that you have appeared
Now that I’m with you my love has seared
Into the dark I will never ride
And into my heart you will never hide

Don’t worry my dear
Nothing will take you away
You have nothing to fear
For with me you will stay

Sleep forever if you wish
I’ll stay with you
My heart is your hearts dish
To feed and true

Oh, beyond your smile
Oh, sleep tonight
Oh, the haunted mile
Oh, the love filled tile

Don’t worry my love is true
I will always wait for you
Nothing makes me want to leave
And I hope nothing makes you too

Beyond this world there is so much more
To make you look more beautiful
Though it is hard to imagine
But your beauty cannot be fulfilled

Entwining are the trees
Reaching together for unity
They wish they could have what we do
You have made me fall in love with you

Close your eyes
And go to sleep
I’ll protect you
So don’t weep

The world is brighter
Now that you have appeared
Now that I’m with you my love has seared
Into the dark I will never ride
And into my heart you will never hide

As i look into your eyes
I can feel myself falling
Into your heart
I want to stay crawling

The darkness unveils
Your perfect face
Behind the skin pale
Is a heart that beats

The spirits disappear
As I kiss your wine red lips
Happiness devours me
As time strips
Slowing down
Making the moment an eternity

Oh, beyond your smile
Oh, the reverie mile
Oh, entwining lovers
Oh, spirits discover

I just wish this night would never die
Forever you and me
Take me with you everywhere
Even into death for I’m in love with thee

-Daniel Treuel

Gothic Love Poems

Morbid Mistress

Within the darkness of night,
Bring forth the black rose,
For thy morbid mistress awaits,
Hear the mortals screams as she wakes.

Her beauty shines from the darkness
within her eyes,
Skin white as snow and eyes dark as sulphur,
Oh what I would give for her,
Just to hear her call my name.

What I would give,
For her to be mine,
I’d dig my grave,
For I want her beauty to be mine.

Oh what hath spawned
that evil vixen from hells gate,
But only from lucifers mouth,
Can her freedom be set,
She walks the path of darkness,
That will always be met.

She mourns the day,
And with the darkness comes
her appetite to feed on human flesh,
Morbidity within her soul,
and hatred for those who do not know,
Of the life that they could have.

Though darkness has claimed her soul,
She walks as though she doesn’t know,
The end for her is near,
And it is truly clear.

Remember the days,
with the sun and it’s rays,
when it shined upon us,
no judgment was passed,
and we walked free in the world.

Is it true what they say,
There is no beauty without cruelty,
Though to take her life from her,
Would be far worse
than she could ever do.

Now we feel the pain of it all,
for our memories kill her,
and I cannot lose her,
for she is so cruel.

Her sins cannot be unmasked,
For she is the devil within our thoughts,
And pain she seeks cannot be reaped,
From the minds of mortal men.

As the night closes in
and shadows lengthen across the land,
the mistress rises to take my hand,
her hands as cold as death
and eyes as dark as dusk,
yet I can see the cruelty
in her face but adore her musk.

With all her beauty and flesh adored,
she took my hand and
delivered the visions
of the life she has led,
pain swept through my body
as I fell to the floor,
screaming in agony.

I saw her life through her eyes,
Felt the feelings that she despised,
And the screams of her victims,
For they hadn’t moved from her mind.

And from the pain she’d given to me,
I received an eternity as she was,
Damned and departed from the lord,
Not that I wanted to be of the light.

Morbid Mistress,
Thy Morbid Mistress,
Morbid Mistress,
Thy Morbid Mistress.

My blood runs cold eternally for thee.

– Daniel Treuel

Lost Love

In this world
Am i here
Taken by your stride
Showing me to hide
Away from what i fear

Distorted images
Are disturbing me
Letting me see
What I will be
As if a reverie

Taken away to see
What had happened again to me
Lifeless for the dangers taken
She was distorted in fragrant death

For the longer she kept
The longer they wept
At her body sinking into the sea
Is this the fate for me

Never had I seen a thing of such grace
Falling away from the darkness of this world
And hated in me
I should see
Still I left her be

Thrashing waves taking her
My loss controlling my mind
I stood and watched
As I stabbed him from behind

He’d taken her away from me
So I took a knife and showed him
The blackening world as he left this earth
And fell into hell unlike my kim

Water blue as the sky
And filled with dangers
After the blood stained the sands
The water just restrained her

Taking her final breathe
The light coming through the surface
No hand to pull her up
I stared at the water and saw the race

Was it me holding her down
Or just me not allowing her to come back
Forsaken to the depths of darkness to drown
She can never take back the crown

But now do I feel better as she’s died
Or just hate myself more
For i could have lived with the lie
That she never actually loved me
And used me for what I could do
I gave her what I had
My heart and my secrets

Blood soaks the sand
Water floods the lungs
I shall never speak of this tragedy
Of my love for her undone

Forsaken to me just like my tongue
For I let her know how I felt
So she went away with him
And all the blood spilled

Cruelty spoken to me
Hating the way she took away my heart
Drowning in the sea
Is myself along side her
Whilst we are still torn apart

-Daniel Treuel

“I don’t like myself you know. I love myself. I’m devoted to myself till my dying day. But I don’t like myself.” – Lestat in Memnoch the Devil

From the Book The Vampire Armand

“Because I show you my pain, I do not of necessity love you.” – Armand

“If I’m an angel paint me with black wings.” – Armand

“I fear him. I don’t know why. Perhaps I fear him because I could love him again, and loving him, I would come to need him, and need­ing him, I would come to learn from him, and learning from him, I would be again his faithful pupil in all things, only to discover that his patience for me is no substitute for the passion which long ago blazed in his eyes.” – Armand

“I’m trimmed in memories as if in old furs. I lift my arm and the sleeve of memory covers it. I look around and see other times. But you know what frightens me the most — it is that this state, like so many others with me, will prove the verge of nothing but extend itself over centuries.” – Armand

“Sweet to think on it, that when we are last weary of all this world there is the rising sun.” – Armand

“In the very depths of Hell, do not demons love one another?” – Alessandra

“Cathedrals rise from dust, to show man wonder. And in the stones men carve the Danse Macabre to show that life is brief. We carry scythes in the army of the robed skeleton who is carved on a thousand doorways, a thousand walls. We are the followers of Death, whose cruel visage is drawn in a million tiny prayer books which the rich and poor alike hold in their hands.” – Santino

“I know nothing, because I know too much, and understand not nearly enough.” – Marius

“Pretend, and grow strong with each pretense. Rather, draw close and be loving and love, without the luxury of complete honesty. For love can bridge all.” – Marius

“The guardians of the dead are powerfully indifferent. They speak of love, but not of centuries of blundering ignorance. What stars are these that sing so beautifully when all the world is languishing in dissonance?” – Marius

“Do not make a religion of reason and logic. Because in the passage of time your mind may fail you, and when it does, you may find yourself taking refuge in madness.” – Pandora

“I live lies because I cannot endure the weakness of anger, and I cannot admit the irrationality of love.”  – Marius

“Let the truth be damned.” – Marius

From the book Blood Canticle

“I want to be a saint. I want to save souls by the millions. I want to do good far and wide. I want to fight evil. I want my life sized statue in every church. I’m talking six feet tall, blonde hair, blue eyes. Wait a second. Do you know who I am?…. I’m the vampire Lestat.”

“Innocence is not our stock-in-trade, my friend. We don’t cultivate it in one another. Honor, I think we can have, more than you may know, and principles, yes, and virtues as well. I’ve taught her that, and every now and then we can behave magnificantly. Even heroically. But innocence? It’s not to our advantage.” – Lestat

From the book The Tale of the Body Thief

“Ah, come now. I look like an angel, but I’m not. The old rules of nature encompass many creatures like me. We’re beautiful like the diamond-backed snake, or the striped tiger, yet we’re merciless killers.” – Lestat

“The meaning of chastity is not to fall in love.” – Gretchen

“But then he is so good at grieving! He wears woe as others wear velvet; sorrow flatters him like light of candles; tears become him like jewels. Well, none of that works for me.” – Lestat

From the book Pandora

“We are thrown back on our words like mortals, only our senses are infinitely keener, and the detachment we know at some times will enflame us, carry us on waves of burning sea.” – Pandora

“I want the world to be better. Better for men and women. Better. Only one thing is clear: the old blood drinkers have by now died out, and there is nothing you or I, or the Queen and the King can do to interfere in the flow of human events. I believe men and women must try harder. I try to understand evil ever more deeply with any victim I take. Any religion that makes fanatical claims and demands on the basis of a god’s will frightens me.” – Marius

“There is but one potion for us and it is blood.” – Pandora

“Grief is absolutely the easiest and safest of bonds.” – Pandora

“I adore you, but you cannot rule over me.” – Pandora

“The finest thing under the sun and the moon is the human soul.” – Pandora

From the book Vittorio, the Vampire

“But I think we all – human, vampire, all of us who are sentient and can weep – we all suffer under a curse, the curse that we know more than we can endure, and there is nothing, absolutely nothing, we can do about the force and the lure of this knowledge.” – Vittorio

“Revenge takes one’s mind from the pain. Revenge is a lure, a mighty molten lure, even if it is hopeless.” – Vittorio

Interview with the Vampire

Posted in Anne Rice's Novels on August 17, 2009 by vampwilock

Lestat, Louis and Claudia

This is the first book of Anne Rice for her Vampire Chronicles. I bought the book when I was in 3rd year highschool. I was able to watch the movie even before I read the book and I could say that it’s because of that movie why I got fascinated with vampires.

The book is originally published in the year 1976. It was adopted into a movie in the year 1994 under the direction of Neil Jordan.

One of the main characters, Louis de Pointe du Lac was portrayed by the actor Brad Pitt. Louis is a black haired mortal with brilliant green eyes from New Orleans. The book mainly tells the story of his lfe. How he became a vampire when he was 25 years old in the year 1791. It tells the adventures that he had after he became the fledgling of Lestat.

The story is being recorded by the human reporter Daniel Malloy portrayed by the actor Chritian Slater.

Lestat de Lioncourt, or better known as the “Brat Prince” on Anne Rice’s novels was portaryed by the actor Tom Cruise. Lestat is a six foot, blonde vampire with a piercing gray eyes. He’s the sire of Louis and Claudia.

It was mentioned on the book that Louis hated the kind of being he had become. He respects life despite the fact that Lestat keeps on telling him that it was in their nature to hunt. He rarely take humans as a victim and even lasted 4 years of not feeding off humans. Except for the night when he saw Claudia.

Claudia (portrayed by the actress Kirsten Dunst) is a five year old kid that Louis found one night in a plague infected town. Louis heard her crying besides her decaying mother and he wasn’t able to resist the urge to feed on her. Lestat caught him and mockingly congratulated Louis in finally embracing his vampire nature.

Louis fled thinking that he killed Claudia. But what he didn’t know is that Lestat brought her home with him and it was Lestat who gave Claudia the Dark Gift. After being transformed into a vampire child, the three of them spent their time with each other but it was with Louis whom Claudia became particularly close with. They even slept on the same coffin.

Over the years, Claudia’s mind changed into that of a woman but her body remains like that of a 5 year old which makes her hate what she is. She blamed Lestat for everything and hated him for being too secretive and bossy with her and Louis. She killed Lestat one night by poisoning him with a dead man’s blood and slashing his throat open. Louis and Claudia throwed Lestat’s body into a crocodile infested river (Lake Pontchartrain) and moved to France to look for other vampires who might give them the answers to the number of questions that they have for being who they are.

There they met other creatures called Revenants. They are the vampires of Eastern Europe, though they looked merely like animated corpse. In Paris, they met the vampire Armand (portrayed by Antonio Banderas). Armand is a 400 year old vampire with auburn hair, deep brown eyes and boyish looks. He’s the leader of Theatre des Vampires.

In there, they have learned that even vampires have rules. Once broken, it could be punishable by death. One of the rule is that a vampire shouldn’t kill his/her own kind. Having that in mind, Claudia knew that her life is in danger. And Louis, being with her is in danger too. Since she knew that Armand wants to be Louis and so is Louis, she demanded Louis to give her a new companion in the form of the mortal Madeleine.

Madeleine lost a child who looks a lot like Claudia and is willing to be her lifetime companion. Despite the promise that he would not condemn someone into the damned life, his love for Claudia pushed him to do the thing he despises the most. He made Madeleine into a vampire.

Unknown to them, Lestat survived and followed them in Paris. He informed the theatre about what Claudia have done. Claudia, Madeleine and Louis were dragged into the theatre. Louis will be buried alive for eternity as a punishment but Armand saved him. Claudia and Madeleine were killed and turned into ashes after being left exposed on the sun. This enraged Louis and in return he killed everyone on the theatre and burned it into the ground.

Louis went back to New Orleans and spoke with Lestat one night but end up leaving him. He also spent some time with Armand but it seems that he lost his life as well when Claudia was killed. In result, Louis and Armand also parted ways…

The story continues on the next book… The Vampire Lestat…
