La Petite Mort
by Eli Wilde

I don’t know how long I slept,
time no longer held any meaning.
The lust for blood awakened me,
always images of that.

Rufus Hobster is a vampire. He writes poetry. Through his poetry Rufus shares what it feels like not being human, what it feels like to kill a human and what it feels like to love a human. La Petite Mort is his recollection of the early days when he first became a vampire, a time when he was nothing more than a rabid beast. It also concerns his life years later when he meets Elise, The Girl Who Synchronised Death. Despite the way Elise makes God weep, Rufus cannot leave her side and it is not until she abandons him that his psychosis guides his life more so than the virus running through his veins.

Inside my head music played
a reminder of everything I had lost,
and I fell asleep weeping lines of red
too frightened to call upon God for help.

La Petite Mort spans a number of genres, including dark romance, horror, philosophy and fantasy. It will appeal to fans of thought-provoking and gothic poetry, as well as fans of Eli’s previous books – Cruel, Four Days, Neophyte and his first poetry collection The Lines.
