Vampires | By: Barbo | | Category: Poem - Dark Bookmark and Share


Under cover of the night you appear, lurking silently within my soul
and tease my consciousness awake, drawing near and nearer still
You snuff the candles and the light, yet somehow luminously stare into my tortured heart
With lustful breaths you fade to black and leave me there to contemplate your dark desire
My eyes grow wide yet fail to focus, hands and brow perspiring, cold
With tightening throat attempting speech, the dryness of my lips deny me simple words
and mock my fear... And as I ease my head to rest again, I find you overhead and laughing...
I reach to touch you but you live inside the things which dreams are made of
And I shall never sleep again
