My hands still keep the memory…

I let you sleep

As I steal away

Into the morning light



Wake up to all

Cats and dog



Off to school

And work…

Always work



Coffee and

A wish for something stronger



My hands still keep

The memory

Of the smooth

Cotton of your shirt

The cool pearl of buttons

As I pushed it

From your shoulders

And kissed your neck

So gently.



I feel your kiss

Your finger in my hair

The flutter of your lashes against my cheek

A days worth of beard

On my skin

On my neck.



No prey are you

But like me

Like us




That only Vampires

Like us,

Have with


Like us.
