I was lucky to meet my true love, one dark and stormy night;
He was strong and cold and mean and lovely, a startling sight;
He ignored me and invaded my house, I screamed for him to leave;
Grabbed me and threw me down, covered my scream with his sleeve;
His hard and firm body pinned me to the floor;
Lovingly touched my face and hair, and God! I wanted more!
He penetrated my brain with his haunting green eyes of death;
Shoved his teeth into my neck, chills running from his hot breath;
The only thought that screamed through the folds of my brain then,
Was that I loved him, I loved it, when could he do it again!

Many nights since I sit with him, waiting for the sun to rise;
When I’m too quiet he’ll turn to me and look deeply in my eyes;
“What is it, my love,” he says to me, “why are you so quiet?”
And that’s when, even if I can’t explain, I simply have to try it:

“I’ve come to believe that some of my humanity is gone,
“I go through the day as I ever did, as I have so long;
“And no matter how impure my thoughts of passion or love,
“I’m starting to think I’m forgotten by the good Lord above.”

My lover smiles his wicked toothy grin, and shakes his head so slow;
And then kisses me slow and hot, how he does whenever he must go;
He whispers in my ear so close and hot, that musky earthy smell;
“Never fear,” he whispers, “Your humanity keeps me alive and well”!

Many weeks later we watch the moon, through my big bay window;
He throws bits of bread to my wild pet, a brilliant black crow.
He turns to me and sees me staring, blankness on my face;
“Quiet again,” he says, “And melancholy, tell me that’s not the case?”
Again my words choke up and I struggle and I try;
But something in his eyes, his look makes me reply:

“I’ve come to believe that I have little humanity left,
“I covet the forbidden, the secret Gabriel gave our cleft."
“The turbid sweet bite, the apple of Eden, that we never were to bite;
“Yet I dream, I beg, I covet. My dark god, give me another bite!”

He shakes his head so silently, and glides over to my side;
Picks me up and stalks in the house, I always love this ride!
We lay in the bed, the candles lit as he kisses me with a fake bite;
“Your humanity is all there,” he says, “It’s my guiding, saving light!”

Many days go by as we make love in the night, and it all becomes a blur;
One night I’m melancholy and try to leave, until I feel him stir.
“What is it, my love” he asks, “what has your beautiful face so long?”
And by now I know my misery so well, I could sing it in a song:

“I’ve come to believe there is no humanity in me at all,
“My life in the sun is kept from me as if by some unscalable wall!"
“What prize is left for me, even one so darkly contrived?
“What life is left for me, when I’m with you am I even alive?”

He pulls me close and holds me tight and I feel him breathing hard;
“I’ts time,” he says, “that you join me, your poor and sad coward,
“You must join me, my angel, and you will forever be as you are."
“We’ll walk the night together, our love will outlast every night star.”
I’m shuddering now, my fear has taken hold and I tremble against his chest;
I nod once, he drinks deep and you all know the rest.
So now I walk the night, my lover at my side;
As a child of the darkness the world has opened wide;
I never hurt, I never hunger and I never even tire;
He was right, you know, I make a bitching vampire.

Artist's Description

I’ve been writing a many paged love poem in the style of Byron, when RavenSoul asked to collab with her, much of this work is hers even if she wont take credit for it! Thank you RavenSoul! You inspire me! Everyone should check out her work, it rocks!!
So as we talked about collaborating for the Immortal Love group, and she sent me some ideas for a poem, I took some of my ideas for the other piece and spent all night putting it together !! It is written specifically for the Immortal Love group. It is a startling departure from my usual writing and topics and inspiration, so I am naturally very nervous about it. I hope you can appreciate it. Enjoy….
