I met her in a noisy pub,
She did not look like she belonged.
Her jet black hair, and pale while skin,
Stood out amongst the throng.
Though jostled by the boisterous,
She seemed above it all.
And when our eyes met, across the room,
She had me in her thrall.
Now when you see the man I am,
It's clear I'm no Adonis.
Men such as I do rarely see
Dame Fortune's smile upon us.
So when she walked across the room,
And took my sweating hand,
I'd gladly follow her anywhere,
Up to the farthest land.
She bade me take her to my room,
I did so in a daze.
I stumbled somehow to my place,
Bedazzled by her gaze.
She bade me strip before her eyes,
I did so in a flash.
I trembled as she looked me o'er,
Afraid she'd judge me trash.
Them with a strength I did not expect,
She drew me to my bed.
She stroked my hair with cold white hands,
And kissed me round my head.
"Before I can give you pleasure, friend"
She purred into my ear,
"I first must take a payment that
I trust is not too dear".
Then 'ere I could move a muscle,
Her sharpened fangs did show,
And from deep within my pulsing neck,
She caused the blood to flow.
Pinned beneath her on the bed,
I could not raise my fist.
As she drained my lifeforce out,
Unable to resist.
The pain and fear I felt at first,
Soon faded into bliss.
As I flowed slowly into her,
Our souls mingling, with this kiss.
She lapped my blood as though it were,
The finest vintage wine.
I felt her body slowly warm,
Revived, her face did shine.
When she at last had supped enough,
Her fierce grip slowly eased.
As She gently down did lay,
I could tell that she was pleased.
"Now Benefactor, I shall drain,
You even more this night.
But do not fear me, Gentle Friend,
You'll see the morning light.
I'm cold below,I need you now,
To stoke my ashes back to flame.
Lend me your manhood for a while,
And you'll know pleasure beyond name."
Without another word she flowed,
Like mist, into me then.
That night I learned of joys profound,
Unknown to mortal men.
At sunrise I awoke alone,
My unearthly lover gone.
I never had a better cause,
To curse the coming dawn.
Since that night I wander oft,
Down unlit streets alone.
I ponder life within the dark,
Where sunlight is unknown.
I wonder if such dark desires,
Could 'ere replace the sun.
Yet each night, as I turn down my bed,
My window.....is undone.
"I soar, within chains"
