He looked at me beyond the obvious, and I shivered amidst
The deepness of his eyes, so piercing and midnight blue
Their intensity was nothing anyone would ever miss
And I knew beyond any doubt, a new reckoning anew.
I felt the haunting of my soul and my eyes stung with tears
I was both afraid and enticed beyond any measure I’d known
As he moved toward me, his purpose much too evidently clear
I stood where I was, unmoving, lest the root of his impetus be sown.
The line of his mouth hardened, his blue eyes deepened to black
Mesmerized, unable to move, I watched him draw ever nearer,
I felt the chill of his breath as he sighed, poised on the precipice of attack
And an enlightenment of his motive became abundantly clearer.
Here was no simple mortal known to mankind amidst the dark
But a creature, so wonderfully formed betwixt both it and the light
He leaned closer to me, his beautiful mouth reaching its mark
And I fell into him, not resisting that which was to be my plight.
I felt the thrill of his touch, the chill of his mouth as he imbibed
From me the blood that ran richly and so magnificently red
And I knew that from this point evermore our worlds would collide
Into an unknown, unchangeable moment I neither feared nor did dread.
He lifted his coal black gaze, looking deeply into dazed eyes of green
I fell and leaned into him, pleading and begging for still more despite
So strong was the unforgiveable need for the unknown and what I had seen
As I longed for his feast upon me to prolong with no need of respite.
Wonderful creature of darkness and light, mark me forever more
With your chilled touch and your stealthy lightness of foot
Make me yours through this night and the truth of your lore
My mind screamed, my heart beat, as the dark, unbidden thought took root.
A grimace of a smile deliberately formed upon his handsome visage
As he stepped back and gave me a look of pure longing so vivid
My heart skipped a beat and felt the immensity of the privilege
And then he quietly withdrew, and the need for him steadily lifted.
As he disappeared into the liquid ink of the midnight evening
I looked about and slowly returned to myself, though amazed and in wonder
With thoughts anew at what I’d just seen despite knowing it was deceiving
And my heart and mind split, and my complete being burst asunder.
And now in the stillness and dark of night, many years beyond that first time
I feel the blue of his piercing eyes, the chill of his breath, the touch of his mouth
And I long for he who invaded midnight while into my heart he did climb
Creating a vortex of need within, as forever, my love for any other was doused.
