I am a vampire that walks among the living.
Romancing you into my cold embrace,
Only taking but never giving,
Now only the gods recognize my face.
This place, a citadel for the darkness of my own heart,
In which you rise like a specter from a nightmare,
We embrace as friends and as enemies depart.
A flickering flame I like to call hope,
I hold captive underneath my spidery fingers.
Attempting to transcend the barrier of reality,
Now only the smell of scorched flesh lingers.
I want to breathe you in,
A desire that is beautiful in its impossibility.
We had ended before we had a chance to begin.
(I ruined you, but we fell together)
