Progeny Of Royal Blood (From Book Rebel Angels And Alien Demons)

Poem by Aram Stefanian

A bat landed on my bed, and spoke in a human voice,
''It's light out for you, '' it said, and fell down
I asked who the hell it was, but the bird was deaf
A demonic messenger or a progeny of royal blood
Reincarnated as a sinister flying mammal?

It still lay on the floor, playing dead
When I covered it with a towel, I was amazed
To watch it turning into a tall blind girl
With dark curly hair, glassy eyes, and a bloody mouth

She took me by the hand, saying, ''I need your blood,
As soon as I quench my thirst, you'll drink mine
And then, together, we'll fly off into the dark''

Her mesmerizing voice dispelled my fear, and I gave in
Ater she gave me a kiss, she bit me into the neck
I felt drowsy, closed my eyes, and was fast asleep
And since then I've been dead to the world, and
Nobody can rouse me
