LestatI put down the book,
Taken from upon my softly breathing chest
And slide from the covers fully dressed in black,
Crucifixes emblazoned in chains about me,
As I step half-waking into a dim world.
Upon my ivory skin grazes no mark,
But my blood beats different within me.
You can't see it but I know.
I slip into the room with this high mirror,
And see reflected someone whom I wish not to be.
The words ring clear in my head
Yet I could not speak them if I tried.
I sit inside this painted room, surrounded by mortals
Who like I dine on empty plates,
The meaning to them lost.
A dead heart beats inside this dead body,
And I forego my human nature,
For though no one sits by my bedside or visits me in the night
I need it not to know what I am.
And I feel this change which presides within me
For he has surely bitten me,
And I am surely his.
One Single MomentI know not how I find myself here,
The moments gone remain unclear,
I hold your friendship far too dear.
Where you stand; so close, so near.
I know my hand cannot stay,
But I can't seem to pull away.
I try to keep these thoughts at bay,
But your eyes are leading me astray.
Where would I be without you now?
But this moment I can't allow,
I would tell you but I don't know how,
I face your words, of which I vow.
I feel your skin and the blood beneath,
I've seen the flash of teeth.
I force my tongue into it's sheath,
Fearing the words it may bequeath.
Despite the torment of our years,
Our friendship's not as it appears,
My heart beats quickly in my ears.
I find I can't allay my fears.
Your matted hair. Your line of chin.
In soul, not blood, are we not kin?
Beneath my palm I feel your skin.
I fear, tonight, I must give in.
