Vampire - Poem by Willow Cochrane

'Let me be that vampire,
Torn and far from weak,
Let me be that thorn,
Long, slender, and sleek.'
Let Me Be That Vampire

You better fear me,
Cuz I'm deaths right hand man.

I hear your scream.
It does not scare me.
I feel your pain.
It does not phaze me.
I taste your blood.
It rejuvenates me.

I taste blood...
on the edge of my lips,
from the cuts on my face.
After the slashing is done.
I taste blood...
when the skin dries and cracks,
from the heat of the sun.
When no sleep comes.
I taste blood...
when I walk off the edge,
and the earth rushes to me.
It all goes black.
I taste blood...
when I walk down the halls,
and into the walls.
No hands out, face first.
I taste blood...
after the gun goes off,
and my head is blown open.
Everything falls out.
I taste blood...
when there is no tomorrow,
everything has faded away.
Death comes to my door.
I taste blood...
when I bash my head against the rock,
until there is nothing left.
My heart still beats.
I taste blood...
when my ribs are broken,
and tear my lungs to shreds.
I keep waking up.
I taste blood...
from the broken heart,
like a dozen knives in my chest.
The pain is finally gone.

Writing my last thoughts
before I disappear
while my eyes bleed tears
slowly slicing my wrist
watching my blood fall like rain
while feeling no pain
