I hadn’t noticed before, but you’re a vampire.

You charm people, but when they get close to you

you suck the life out of them.

A succubus eating through relationships,

and now you’re clinging to that child

as a tool to make that old man stay

while you drain him, too.

I’m glad some of them got away.

  1. The child will break free, eventually.

  2. I’m always surprised at how selfish people can be…It always amazes…

  3. Maureen Says:

    there are a few of those around…

  4. It’s very scary. I’ve known a few vampires in my life, and they always seem to thrive. I keep hoping for them to meet another, stronger vampire.
