The heart of a vampire

Compared to the rest of my upbeat and optimistic entries, this poem is dark and depressing. I'd be lying if I admitted that I don't have my off days every once in awhile. I guess I wanted to show that for every monster there is someone out there with a heart big enough to hold all faults and monstrosities. I don't know why people love even the most unloveable souls, but hey love is blind.

It beats inside me…
With the love I drained from you
The way a vampire drains a victim
From their heart's sweet warm blood

I breathe slowly
With air you have blown into me
Reviving me, breathing life into
One who has been lifeless so long

And here you lie, nestled in my arms
Protected, safe against the heart
You long to burrow into

You yearn to possess my heart
But what is there to own?
Hollow inside and yet it beats

Stubborn, insisting on existing
It beats eagerly out of spite
For those who drained it before

I hold you close, kiss your head
Feeling almost maternal
Offering you protection

I'm so small against you
Yet still I would protect you
From this world and its horrors

Here with you, nestled in my arms
I choke with fear and guilt
I can't protect you from myself

You see, it is never wise to give your heart
Unto one such as me…a feast for the taking
The heart of vampire beats within me

I'm dead….and I have nothing to offer you but death in return…
