I felt your teeth between my legs

Your tongue, teasing

As you ate

You loved me

Though you were gone by dawn

I wanted you again

So I let it go

 

I saw you for three months more

You only bit once

So I opened my legs and wondered

About my neck

I came more times that night

Than I ever came before

Yet my heart was empty

 

Another three months

When you asked again

I exposed my neck

Your blank canvas

You drank

Tentatively

When you hungered more

Your fangs migrated south

I provided

And let the rest go

 

Another three months

Again from my thigh

I hunger for

Your teasing at my neck

I am locked in a cycle that sucks

More than blood

I don’t know how

To let it go
