As you dwindled on the pyre
Sparks flew higher and higher.
Then one brave spark came to me
I watched it flicker, it was all I could see.
Through my stomach it burnt its way
And I was filled with you and what you could do
The magic spark that your life was made of
Was the making of mine now.
I knew I had power.
You had bitten me in death
With your smokey breath
While your embers are still burning
I am already turning.
Did your incisors mean to bite?
I can’t remember. I lost my sight.
I’m pretty sure you tasted blood
Sucked me of all that was ever good.
Your lust is laced with something dark
A frenzied need to leave your mark.
If only it was immortal living
But that’s certainly not what you’re giving.
Though you are leaving me with something eternal
Something damned. Something infernal
Forever thinking, forever in thought
Was it really my blood that you sought?
Or was the seeker really me ?
Looking for darkness, seeking thee?
Was I the one to sniff you out?
Sense the darkness with my snout
But one bite from your mouth and I let go
Let it all out. Let it all flow.
I’m damned forever. Doomed to the night.
But I have to admit
I was never light.
