No, more than that.
A poison seeping through the blood
One that writhes along insidiously
Infecting all it touches.
That’s what you are to me.
I’m infected by you,
Can’t seem to shake you.
The more I try the harder I fall.
Each time I take a step forward
There are three more back.
I had done so well
Till you showed up again.
So strong, so strong,
Now tainted by your weakness.
Can’t pry you lose,
You cling to life
A parasitic form
Attracted to the innocence,
A vampire through and through.
I love you yet, I don’t know why
Keep coming to you in my mind,
Remembering the times we shared
Conveniently skipping all the bad
The good shines through so clearly
