When light fades in the horizon and darkness takes its place,

I slowly stir awake to face the realities of my life with grace.

Is it life as we call it or something else undefined?

a reality of eternal dreams that are not quite mine,

wings of desire for a sweet drug that calls my name,

and resist I try with promises of punishment in vain

as I fly away in search of the one promised for tonight

to satisfy the hunger that in me causes much fright.


It softly calls me there with soft tones of anticipation

as I hear her steps pacing a heart that is my salvation.

A haunting aroma of sweat reveals the perfect match

leaving a trail that entices me to blindly follow and catch,

what was promised to me when I became this

and I am able to save or condemn with a kiss.


As I drink from her sweet elixir calming my hunger

and looking at her face in the moonlight I wonder,

If her tears carry a plea for life and salvation

as her limp body in my arms becomes my damnation.


When the light stirs again in the horizon as night fades

I seek the comfort of shadows that has become my fate,

and waiting for the night I lay quietly in slumber

as prepared I must be to satisfy my hunger.
