"Someone has to take care of me,"
The vampire says.
Hopeful, she watches by sunlight
In darkness caters to his every whim.
But frustration builds
To gather resistance.
Great black thunderclouds of emotion.
Gouts of aggravation spew out her mouth.
Hateful words eat away at him like vitriol.
Nothing seems to help, her or him.
Small interludes of peace, even joy
Sour with the reminder that
Each dawn it starts again.
He promised to make her
Big and strong.
Her Salvation a parasite cloaked
In pleasant disguise.
Vampire to be.
As damaged as he.
A leech: nothing but a leach.
