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.

Fyre. Desyre.

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.
