The Vampire Within

 

I was born this way,

Mortal yet not,

With a soul from beyond

Which in daylight cries;

But at night sweet music makes.

 

At the back of my mind, a whisper

Whose addiction continues undying,

Of things beyond the flesh

Seen only in the gaze of an eye,

Whose window must terrify my own

As I dream of what may await me.

 

Ever I persist, on this quest

For the black to my white

That yearns to be absorbed, contained,

By one whose wings can challenge my own

And to a place carry me,

That for you is Hel,

But me…

 

Heaven.
