never after

never after

A Chapter by light years in love
"

08/2011 (Blood type B: Installment Three)

"
Rain sweeps in from the east
crashing into the dry earth
watering the waste known
as this city

I've been cowering from the sun
that burns its ugliness into my skin
patiently awaiting blessed nightfall
so that I may feed without concern

I've shut myself away from the world
so that they can't see the horror in
my eyes or the contortion that racks
my body from the lack of fresh, warm blood

I remember waking up to this never after
this life without you, I remember embracing
the spirits
of the dead, only to become one

How I wish someone would fasten a stake
and drive it through my beat-less heart
or cast a silver bullet and put it into my brain
please rid me of this torment that surrounds me
and is me

Immense resignation and immersion within this love! To feel so numb and recognise the darkness as the self is to be liberated in some ways...brilliant piece once more..because it can be internal or horror...works well for both..I love your style :) xx

do the truly evil things in this world have remorse? If they do, how can they be truly evil?
This is a powerful poem. The vampire genre is well covered but you put a great spin on it

Even the un-dead wish to be free of whatever existence they may be trapped in. Wrought with emotion. Great write.

You do this so perfectly. Expressing how they feel so well. Everyone wants to be one of them, but then again, no they dont.
