Our nights are deep and dark and close
As we lay down side-by-side.
But this night is different,
There's a shielded emotion of longing in his deep amber eyes.
A look of hunger crosses his face,
Quickly followed by pain.
I don't want him to hurt and I tell him so
As fresh tears drip like rain.
He wants me to leave,
To keep me safe from himself.
But his eyes keep me still in a trance.
As his fangs protrude and sink into my flesh.
I should have run while I still had the chance.
