warm, sweet, metallic red

*

i desire

the paleness of your skin

*

pulse of your heart

i want to resist

your beauty just makes it too hard

*

i do, i want to resist

i can taste your fragrance from across the square

your laughter engulfs me

but not only me

*

your summer dress

attracts the crowds as you dance

as you smile and sweat

your fragrance grows stronger

my control wanes

*

yet i resist

as the night dims

and the crowds fade

my mind races to the thought

bloodless for days

none that I enjoyed anyway

*

you end your night

violin packed away

you cross the square

heading my way

i must decide

*

raising my hand

reaching out to you

a dance I say

last on — would you?

*

A waltz it is

your sweeter than I dreamt

I caress your face

*

you look at me

with full permission

*

I pause, and fly away

___________

End notes:

Even bloodsuckers fall in love beyond the flesh.

Happy Valentine's Day

    The greatest gift you can give your sweetheart on Valentines Day is not to suck on her sweet heart 😁
