Poem – Vampire’s Kiss

VAMPIRE’S KISS

You sense me hiding.
From the shadows I stalk.
You try to avoid me.
As the closer I get, the faster you walk.

You try to flee.
You try to hide.
Yet within a heartbeat,
I’m there at your side.

You stare deep,
Deep into my eyes.
You cannot move, you cannot cry,
Your whole body becomes paralyzed.

Your neck is exposed.
With one single bite.
Your blood flows to me,
As you hold me, hold me tight.

You thrill to my touch,
To my every caress.
Your life flows to me,
And to you, flows my death.

Your darkest desire,
Your deepest pain.
You cry out your longing.
Again and again.

I continue to drink.
Your life’s single spark
Starts to grow dim,
and fade into dark.

We end the embrace,
The blood ceases to flow.
I fly quickly away,
And soon, you will know.

Know how want,
Know how you’ll miss,
Know how you need,
The vampire’s kiss.
