    Legend says that you must invite them in
    But, I should’ve known better.
    It was a simple mistake,
    Falling for the illusion of real frosting fake.
    Opening up,
    To let her sup with me,
    Taste my thoughts,
    Define my soul so intimately.
    While all the while I was ignorantly
    Dancing with she the devil,
    Her stripping fingers, getting into, at me.
    To the past musical beat,
    Of a count’s forbidden dance.
    My mind too blind,
    Tangled in trances of romance.
    Wherein we’d dance,
    Tango and Marengo into the swell of night
    The way very black darkness swings sweet moonlight
    Yet apparently, it wasn’t clear to me
    Because I thought she should’ve known
    Feelings like vines were grown
    And I might be turned,
    Into a lover whose heart branded and burned
    To one day return,
    Ask her for blood.
    How I never knew,
    She’d only disappoint.
    Flee; draw back into the shadows like the Vampire filled
    Disappearing after every drop of me was gone.
    And I alone, was convulsing on the floor
    Bleeding on her behalf,
    Thirsting for something,
    I couldn’t have.

    Yes love sucks... but if I tell you
    I just love the way love feels.:)
    It doesn't suck all the time, we gotta
    take the good with the bad.
    Your joint is heart felt though, I know the feeling too well.

    Much Luv
