He watched the moon rising in the
and felt that primal urge hit him
It was that need he could never
a life style given he might never
So swiftly now he became another
the one who preyed and fed at
Of this nature which he had no
as was his aversion to warm
His stomach churns a memory
of his love once had and lost long
A flutter of wings that no one
He will take his next victim so
Below him the woman waits for
Oblivious that he watches her as
She emits radiance as bright as
and a goodness which the vampire
He licks his lips with that
It is so good he thinks smugly to
live as I do
Ever so silently he approaches
just out of sight.
She would be his before the night
He sees her teardrops as he draws
He feels the pain that emanates in
and it rends his wicked spirit
with utter fear.
He takes in her image that beauty
His cruel heart melts as he
watches her face
there beneath that star filled
A taste of bitter almonds he
of love shared with someone, a sad
He chides himself and his soul
a darkness as the daylight when
void of any sun.
Resolutely he pushes himself
toward his mark.
Taking her quickly, he feasts,
till the deed is done.
