monster

the vampire
lies awake
through the day
longing to feel
the sun’s gentle kiss
i lie awake
through the night
longing for you
tightly wrapped
in my embrace

i worry
in the quiet
before sunrise
that monsters
like me
are destined
to pine away
for the light
that never shines
on their
rancid souls
