i wrote this for Joy Evans halloween contest. it was inspired by the idea of vampirism and/or incubi and succubi (sp?) but anyways it's about a gir who is in love with a vampire or incubus, but she begins to wonder what he is and if he is something supernatural. she begins to question why he leaves during the day and why he only somes at night.
for those of you who don't understand the last line, when she says 'what is your new task?' she is asking him whether or not he will tell her the truth or just lie some more

Does the innocence disappear?
When the day comes, my dear?

A lover; a friend
You are to no end.

But what will you say...
When I ask you to stay?

Will the sun send you running?
or Will you stay, oh so dark and cunning?

Will you search for a lullaby?
That conceals the lie?

The one that you hide.
That covers your other side.

The one you've kept from me,
That hurts me deeply.

So now I ask...
What is your new task?
