GloPoWriMo: Day 15

It’s the fifteenth day of GloPoWriMo so we’re halfway through!  Today’s prompt was to write a poem in which a villain faces an unfortunate situation, and is revealed to be human (but still evil). Perhaps this could mean the witch from Hansel & Gretel has lost her beloved cat, and is going about the neighbourhood sticking up heart-wrenching “Lost Cat” signs, but still finds human children delicious. Maybe Blackbeard the Pirate is lost at sea in an open boat, remembering how much he loved his grandmother (although he will still kill the first person dumb enough to scoop him from the waves).

I have written a poem about one of my favourite Gothic villains, Dracula.  I hope you enjoy it.

Mina

Oh I love you so
My beautiful Mina

You know you’re only staying
Out of guilt because you met him first

I know you love me too
I know it
You have to

Mina, my beautiful, beautiful Mina
Come back to me

No, please don’t say you won’t

Her?
Who?
This?
It’s, she’s no-one
Look she’s already dead

Mina!
