Modern Vampire



I see you, you see me
The Darkness, surrounding

I wonder how you
will feel against me?
Life and light far gone
Now I'm free

You're cloaked in black
Empty but without lack

What is it you want?
Or is it just the hunt?

Am I your next meal?
I can see my blood hot and flowing
As long as I feel
My strength is dead but I'm glowing

You're a modern vampire
And I'm your slave
You've built an empire
Out of all I gave

Black hair, white skin, curves that can kill
Your silhouette in moonlight sealed the deal

Love me to death
Loveless is my life
Bliss to my last breath
Fangs sink like a knife
