Vampire (for deverse- Wild Beasts)



Vampire



You promise me eternity
where there is no sun

No morning call echoing
in the breeze of a newborn day

You tempt me with
undying beauty-
armor against old age

Yet I hesitate and realize
 all I hold dear will die
 in the darkness

You belong to the night
And all its black secrets

Forever would never be enough
for the sacrifice.

  2. while there are perks you def have to weigh the pay offs...i would imagine the hardest part would be watching those you love...and friends pass on...knowing you will outlive them all...
