All Hallows' Eve

written by: refract reality

 

On Halloween night, now many years ago
Eve walked her child under hazy, moonlit glow
Soon crossing paths with a mysterious man
Who with his own child, walked hand in hand

They passed closely by and during mid-stride
Could tell that the other was familiar inside
When in the fateful moment they met each’s gaze
It set their hidden predator’s fires ablaze

Then without thought the violence erupted
Animalistic growls of two souls corrupted
There was no chance to quell the passioned rage
As each escaped from their dark, domestic cage

She struck him first with blinding fury and speed
He winced in pain, but not yet did he bleed
Strong was his will and without pausing fought back
While she thoroughly relished his ferocious attack

His hands felt powerful as she was drawn near
She feigned to struggle, but did not feel fear
Never did she worry about losing control
Only whispered instructions, then to him she’d extol

Her claws ripping skin on his back and his sides
He pulled her in closer by her naked thighs
Ripped to shreds were both his and her clothes
And from inflicted pain his bloodlust then rose

His dagger was steel and encroached on her lips
She ran the blade through her nimble fingertips
Her fangs always bared she pierced through his skin
Blood smeared her face and the man winced again

His hands always probing for something to grip
As his tongue lashed out like a razor-laced whip
Together they howled in glorious pain
Then exhaustion took over, their strength now in wane

When feeling the tug on her extended right hand
She was brought back to the night’s conscious land
Her step still continuing without breaking stride
As the child pulled her forward her demon would hide

Was but an instant for she and the stranger
But remember she does the exquisite danger
Claws since sharpened and cleaned of the gore
She craves that her wound be opened once more

Wanting each year to glimpse him at least
To gaze in his eyes and loose her own beast
Will this year bring pain or again will she grieve
The huntress will hunt on All Hallows’ Eve
