Some teenagers go through their middle and high school years sad, alone, desperately looking for that one special person. We may think that we might not find them. Then suddenly, when we are not looking, there they are beautiful and ageless. And when we take that kiss, that kiss of love, it is the end of our old lives and the start of a new one. That is the kiss of a vampire…
The days are like the seasons
They come and go as the please.
We however still roam the crowded hallways
Every little issue like the bites of fleas.
We remain polite to others
But some just can’t understand the pain.
We look on as friends affectionately lock lips
And we fade into the scenery like a stain.
They don’t do it to hurt anyone
It’s just one of those things that love makes people do.
But my heart feels like the life is being drained away
I feel almost helpless as to what to do.
It feels like a vampire is draining me…
I was convinced I would never find her
That true love was nothing but a myth.
So I gave up searching for her
I had nothing to go on with.
Suddenly, when I wasn’t looking
She strode her way before me.
She looked like a goddess from fantasy
All of her features down to a tee.
Her shoulder length hair, her red lips
Were like something from a book.
Her perfect figure, her sparkling eyes
Enthralled me with just a look.
How could I have known she was a vampire?
I didn’t let her beauty get to me
In a girl I was looking for something more.
But then she started to talk to me.
And I suddenly felt like this was the one I’ve been looking for.
We shared the same interests
Listened to the same songs.
And a sudden feeling whirled inside me
That I haven’t felt in so long.
Then one night, whilst gazing at the stars
Our hands began to mold.
Our fingers continued to intertwine
And neither of us needed to be told.
I was falling in love with a vampire.
The first time we starred into our eyes
We knew that something was about to end.
The life I had lived before
Had rounded its final bend.
I was beginning to live anew
My old life was slipping from my veins.
The blood of the past was draining
I would no longer feel any other pains.
She was the Bella to my Edward
The one I had waited years to find.
I was free from my curse at last
The chains of the past began to unbind.
I had kissed a vampire.
A wise friend of mine once said
Try not to fall try not to let it be a vampire you love.
Their affection for someone is a strong bond
And yet it has the delicacy of a dove.
The effects if the bond is broken
Is more than some simple sting.
The wound of the heart never fully heals
Even as other wedding bells may ring.
But I have faith in our relationship.
We will face any hurdles head on
And come out in each other’s arms.
My old life is now gone.
I am in love with a vampire.
