Evil intelligence marshalled into action,
Desiring only to deceive and destroy,
Watching and waiting for the perfect victim:
A believer in goodness and honest intent.
Ready now – steady now –
Joyfully piling brick upon brick upon brick upon brick
Overlaying all with the synthetic sweetness of cunning.
Each revelation a lie, each declaration a falsehood,
Piling more brick on brick,
Hyena soul howling hysterically as the blind is constructed
With just enough neediness faked to seem real.
Oh, the rapture of conquest pervading the deadness,
Jolting the withered heart into a semblance of beating,
Thrilling to the agonies of the leg in the trap!
Yes, this is what the vampiric soul exists for.
Laughing and dancing, the sacrifice complete,
Ah – almost too easy – the predator moves on.
