Hungry Desire - Poem by Rebecca Pepper

Your eyes as black as night
You souls flame burns so bright
Your love for my life stops your embrace
Your blood the painful reminder of your race

I can hear your heart longing
The pain that comes with belonging
The beauty that caught my eye
Why does it make me cry?

The hunger that consumes you
Is the spark I see now renew
But know you want more than blood
Now what you need is love

So now you run so fast and far away
You hide to prevent the hunger taking sway
But the fangs need to be fed
And they desire something so darkly red

So you flee from love but what about my life
Because now I take my stand from this strife
I will not let you ever live alone
The thought of you leaving chills me to the bone

The simple wound left to bruise
However my life is what I would lose
To be held forever in your arms
At peace now you protect me from all harm
