Count Dracula

A Relationship, Feigned - Poem by Count Dracula

If you delve into my darkness
Deep, down in silence
You will find within me
A pair of pained people
A contemptuous mother
And a malcontent father
Who lay side by side
But never quite touch
No blood on earth
Could bind them together
Miss-matched and opposite
With no common ground
Love is a foreign word
That they wish to express
If only they knew
How to translate one another
Even with so much promise
Their disappointment reigns
And they know not, any better
Than a relationship, feigned
