Baby, I’m a Vampire!

Baby, I’m a Vampire!

written by: Maya

 

Aches all gone, blood all gone
Your pretty vampire.
Where did all my life go?

I guess I ask aloud
You lift a finger, lift my gaze
to a mountain peaked in red.

You lay in the dirt, face up
I follow
It’s bright and we’re blind.

The mountain melts;
closer to the sun than you and I.
Laying, waiting

waiting, draining

Out of places facing down,
the blood takes rest
beneath our backs, in our hair
and noses and eyes and ears.
My hollow body, your hungry mind absorb
