Millennia have crumbled and yet I stand unblemished.

My clothes and face, time hath not yet tarnished.

Walking the thin line between indifference and care,

Dead and dusty, yet alive and most fair.

The hunter and the hunted, in me, all is one.

Rising with the moon when the mortal day is done.

Dancing with the ladies, charmed in the blink of an eye,

Knowing not I will drain them, as they step with me outside.

A world alive in blood, for the taking it is mine,

For a wolf in sheep’s clothing, no obstacle is time.

 And yet…

The twittering ladies bore me; too many I have dated,

Still I hunger, even when my thirst for blood is sated.

Through the day I sleep, but yet wake as tired as the dead,

And the memories come crowding like a blood clot in my head.

I am sick of being a vampire; every hour is a test,

And now my only hunger is for eternal sleep…

                                                                                … and rest.

It's beautiful! I'd say the last two lines are the strongest-eternal sleep and rest...
Very well!

"Walking the thin line between indifference and care,

Dead and dusty, yet alive and most fair."

Ooo, nice imagery with that! *shudder*

"...wake as tired as the dead," Nice double-entendre!

Nice job with this one!
Happy New Year by the way. 12
