I'm wandering in a twilight world of warming love and sticky bloodstains that won't wash away in the cold spring rains. In the distance comes the soulful cry of a mourning dove, grieving as I do, for a new-found love.

The memory of his kiss still lingers on my lips along with the sweet taste of death that came with each breath
I took of him.

How can the Dark be so attractive to the Light? Do I really love him? I'm afraid I just might. My life he did save, from the emptiness of the grave, and delivered to me
The pleasures of the Night.

How did we meet? The club had closed, where I was wandering, only heaven knows. Hearing echoes of footsteps, I quickened my pace. Suddenly desperate to get back
To my place.

Out of the alley, ahead to my right, darkened figures came, stepping into the light. In panic I froze as they reached for my clothes. No mistaking their intent.

Out of the darkness came a blinding flash of night, in terror I cowered, opened my eyes and beheld a horrid sight.
Tall and dark, he tore them limb from limb,
I knew not then it was him.

Blood-soaked and wild, he seemed a ravening beast, turning to me with eyes almost mild and a sliver of smile, he turned to continue his feast. I let out a gasp, more like a rasp and let
Darkness claim me.

Since that night of terror and delight, he's slipped under my skin, into my dreams, he is with me every night, in my thoughts
It seems I hear their screams
As he avenges me.

What impossible love this is, the height of my desire is a Vampire!

Thank you both. The recognition of peers is all I ask for my meager efforts.

i never call a poem "nice" or such,
for that would not be saying much
