Le Vampir

Darkness dons it's blackened shawl,
draping itself across the city.
Descending to chase away lights traces
of the day without remorse or pity.

The emptied streets envelope shadows
in the silence of the night.
A figure stands alone concealed
away from the lanterns light.

Piercing eyes from under the cloak
viewing the world with selfish desires.
Eyes that seek the lusting sustenance
driven by hunger's burning fires.

A fevered mind at the edge of madness
from gluttony's unsatisfied power.
Flashing memories of sloven consumption
intensifies painfully by the hour.

Thirsting for blood's warmth
never to thaw an ancient frozen heart.
Sharpened senses to detect one's prey
and determination to play one's part.

Creeping stealthily through shadows
like a panther seeking out it's prey.
An enigmatic creature of 'la luna'
who shuns the naked light of day
