Survival

I awoke
with hunger pains today

how long since I had
eaten?
another lifetime, I think

I have been hiding
here in the dark
(would you, could you in the dark?)
from the slayers
of my kind

my skin
is deathly pale,
my sunlight days are gone

I hunger

I hide among the bodies
of the dead
that can rise again

and taste the taste
of flesh
forbidden meat

forbidden and sooooooo sweet

I can see
why they come back
and feast upon us.
