Blood, Sucker


I trusted you, I trusted you with the very depths of my being, showed you the shining core that was my soul. I traded my last shirt off my back, gave you my last morsel of food. When everyone doubted you and threw you in a pit for the swine, I picked you up and told you that you are worthy.
and you?
you betrayed me?
You waited until I slept, bound me and you sold me like a trinket from a merchant’s stall.
All I ever did was love you.
So I bit your neck and drank your blood… Hey, you can turn into a bat.
You are a vampire now, grow up.
it is just blood, sucker
