WHAT AM I?: Nephilim WHAT AM I?: Nephilim
A teen boy gets killed, but trades his soul for another chance. He changes. A girl notices the new boy with silver eyes.
You Shouldn't, I Can't Fight it

You Shouldn't, I Can't Fight it

A Poem by BenightedWhispers

You shouldn’t kiss me like this unless you want me like that.


Your loving gaze will stop me just like that.


These butterflies inside me should just die away,


but your honey-filled lies beg me to stay.


The night with the stars all around us make all my thoughts fade,


and even though I know you, it won’t keep me at bay.


Surrounded by love as twisted as vines will pull me under until I die.


You pull me under to make me stay, but even through this


 my mind finds a way to see


your dark beauty not as a façade.


I can’t fight these feelings I have for you.
