Questions To The Dark Prince And His Reply - Poem by Michelle Hyde

Young prince of darkness
Why do you hearken
To seek my door
When the light is no more?

Tell me dark prince
Because it has been the same since
I began to dream
Of a man with skin paler then cream.

When I was young
All of this was fun
Because I would wait
For you very late.

I would stare out my window at night
And there you stood in the moon light
Waiting for your chance
To steal a single dance.

So tell me now my prince of darkness
Why do you always hearken
To seek my door
When days light is no more?

The dark princes reply

I seek your arms as a shelter
To protect me from my failure
That I faced at one time
Away from this body and mind.

Your love to me is like a fire
Which will burn for dark desire
I admit that I was bold
Because my love I shall never grow old.

I wear this ragged attire
Because my dear love I am a vampire
That is why I hide from the days light
And appear only during the night.

I shall show you my gift
But only if
you promise to join me
In dark matrimony.

We shall sleep during the days light
And walk this world at night
For we need our rest
In this unholy death.
