How sweet it is, but love is stronger

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 😁
