Ordeal by T. K. Varenko
It is a verse-ornated storyAbout love, betrayal, wrath,Royal vampires' bliss and gloryBringing them straight to their death.
Luella, fierce, strong vampire,Falls for a pretty human catchSent on her fiancé's desireTo celebrate they are engaged.
This unexpected turnaboutIs doomed to come to a dead end:Her human sweetheart's dead to shroud;Her fiancé's avenged for that;
And she is punished for blood treason,Banished into a mortal child,Whose human body is a prisonFor all her powers to bind.
Her memories obliterated,She is to find her love at lastWho proves to be too much relatedTo the misfortunes from her past.
And as a little treat Tatyana has whipped up this verse for you, BlogFest entrants:
Reading is an untamed desire,
A passion that enslaves your mind,
It gives your dreams what they require
Which is a pleasure of a kind.
It’s an escape when you are tired,
A realm to make you feel alright,
The food you need to be inspired,
A means to always tell what’s right.
And every written world is binding:
It plants its seed into your brain
Making you capable of finding
Your own way through life and pain.
It makes you think and that is vital
To turn existence into life,
Enchants you with a good recital
About love, and faith, and strife.
It avalanches you with stories
Of worlds you’ve never seen before
And neatly deals with mundane worries
When that’s what you are looking for,
Takes you to different dimensions
And makes your spirit feel the thrill
Of breaking up with the conventions
Of real life suppressing will.
Nothing’s impossible in reading:
Books are an endless knowledge well,
Imagination is exceeding
The limits of a human shell.
