It’s a dark and stormy night

Clouds hide the moon

Fog drifts across the ground

The air grows cold as a tomb

 

A chill runs down your spine

Your heart pounds, you gasp for breath

You hear a hollow footstep, then another

A hand grasps your arm, cold as death

 

For a moment you think “I can get away”

Then you see his red, glowing eyes

You fall into them, trapped in his power

And you realize you’ll believe all his lies

 

He pulls you to him, his body hard and strong

He strokes your hair, kisses your lips

He whispers words of love and promise

Your body tingles, and your resolve slips

 

His mouth brushes across your pulse

You hold your breath, anticipate

“Hurry, hurry!” your mind screams

Suddenly, you cannot wait

 

His hands stroke your body, your sensitive skin

Yet, something within you continues to resist

His lips follow where his hands blaze a path

All fight vanishes—“Now!” your senses insist

 

His breath is hot on your throat

His arms convulse, holding you tight

Pain courses through your body as his fangs pierce your skin

Instinct, for a moment, rouses you to fight

 

Ecstasy replaces pain

You relax in his arms

Your death is his life

Your blood drains away, no alarm

Darkness overcomes you

Your body seems to float, weightless

Your death comes as no surprise

Yet, you marvel, it was mostly painless

 

Slowly, you come back to the world

Though dark, you see like day

Your body feels energized, strong

You rise from the ground where you lay

 

He is gone now, his need appeased

Yet you will always feel him near

He’s a part of you now

But you no longer fear

 

Power flows through your veins

You gaze up at the full moon in the now clear sky

The world beckons the new you

You may be dead, but your future is nigh
