Print Save Become a Fan
The journey of a woman becoming a vampire
Your body breaths itís earth-tone breaths
Beside my pillow you doth breath
A living being of earthly delights
A child of night
A child of death
A child of fear
Lying beside me
Taking in each breath
Absorbing each molecule
I watch your mouth form its minute movements
As you mull your thoughts over
Oh those unearthly dark thoughts of lust and harvest!
A harvest of souls for a life of eternity
I will not be your next target of darkly lust!
You had me once oh child of darkness
Never no more!
I steal into the night
And towards the light
Oh great one, shelter me from this dark lust,
This death of self
This want of blood!
Oh the treachery
As he sees that I leave his side
From his dark sleep he wakes to my escape
He pins me down,
Takes in my fear,
Feeds on it,
Then he takes me in
All of me,
And it is done
I am no more, a child of light
I am but a mirror image,
A child of dark
As is he
I am no more

This is a very descriptive poem about life the dark side. It is a very good poem and it is a big eye-opener. The question is, "Do we really want to be on the Dark side?"

|Too being afraid of the dark is not pleasant but when you don't like the dark and feel overwhelmed that it is controlling you, you need to mend your ways and thank God you are alive to see the darkness too.|
