Poem ~ Falling for a vampire

It was so naive falling for a vampire

the incubus and me

wandering the dark night

Oh, the company I keep!


Still, I dived at you

confided you with my care

and I dined on you

with every tooth that I had


You fed me

and I came to life through you


Perfect as it seemed

of course there was a dark side

when I struggled to breathe

you struggled with your pride

and something else too deep


Still I cried for you

I cried for you, like the rain

and every tooth

that dined on you

felt that pain


You fed me

til I began to need your love
