|This is a simple tale of how one is changed into one of the incredible nightstalkers known as vampires. After 'Eternity' was submitted to poetry.com and published, I was asked to submit another poem for another book of theirs, and this is what I sent them. Hopefully they will like this too. Just a quick note on the title because I have been asked about it in the past...for those of you who don't know, when a vampire bites someone, it is called either the Embrace or the Silver Kiss. I chose 'Night of the Silver Kiss' because I thought it would sound nice and mysterious. ^_^||
Cold arms hold me still, the Dead flesh as strong as stone
Body to body with a wild-eyed beauty
Too bewildered to cry out, too mystified to even fear
Muscles like steel, flesh like velvet, Touch like fire
Beautiful eyes draw mine, burning into my soul
A chilled breath floats past my neck
The press of fangs felt through the soft lips
Knees weak, body trembling
Then, the kiss, quick and sharp
Blissful pain, dizzyingly sweet
Vision explodes in stars, a private universe
My mouth filling suddenly with a sweet elixir
Drink hungrily, being held by a strong hand on my back
My hands find a wrist at my mouth and grasp it
Betrayed by gravity, my body falls
The arms release me, but I never hit the ground
