Fear of the Dark



The sunlight burns like napalm

I know because I put my hand out once

I watch these weak white worms wake

Shake off their nighttime terrors

So brave in the daytime

Strutting and squawking

Safe beneath the cruel sun

This is their time

But my time will come

This vampire life

I must wait for Nightfall



Darkness suits this pretty little town

With its dirty secrets

These people are dark inside

Upstanding citizens yet it appears

They like shadows and blood

As do I

The lights are on in the village

Time for me to walk amongst them

To drink and make merry

And remind them why they fear

The fall of night
