T’was many and many a year ago
In our kingdom by the sea
That I, a maiden, by the name Annabel Lee lived with my king
I lived with simple thoughts, nothing else would please me
Then to love and be loved by none other than he
He was a child, and as was I
But I paid that no mind
Because we loved with a love that was more than a love
In our sea castle high
With the love of the Heavens on our side
Our love never died
He filled my cup, turn not a bashful eye
We never thirsted, our love bountiful
The Angels blessings surrounding us
But that was the reason in our kingdom by the sea
That soon my highborn kinsmen came to retrieve me
No tears emptied their sullen eyes as they came
Invading our kingdom by the sea
I could offer no struggle as they tore he and me
The Angels laughed as he fell to knees
How jealous they had been
Envy; what a putrid shade of green
The chilling wind came through the night
Killing and chilling me, given me no fright
But I, Annabel Lee, had one thing
The love of my king, my sweetest love
In our darkened kingdom by the sea
Humans, old and young, that pried
Angels that danced in the sky
Demons that swam in the sea
They could not keep him from me
His Annabel Lee
No force big or small could dance in our kingdom by the sea
Nor dissever his soul from mine
His dearest Annabel Lee
For my soul did not wander far
I became the moon that gave him his dreams
I stayed close, having no will to be separated from he
My dearest king of our kingdom by the sea
Instead, I rested in the sepulcher by the sea
My eyes always watching him
My king who now slept eternally

PurpleInkling: Hippocrite is spelt hypocrite.Also it is an awesome story! A good one after so long. I was hoping someone would write a good fanficiton playing off what Ron said at the station.

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse!
