The Vampire's Gem

The night is filled with their shadows

Creatures of unspeakable horror
They feed on their victims blood
They are cruel and they are fierce
With eyes as cold as the night
Vampires rule with an iron fist

I run fast with it clenched in my fist
A gem as dark as the shadows
I could barely see it in the night
All I could think were thoughts of horror
The branches hitting my face were fierce
Scratching my skin and drawing blood

Now covered by my own blood
I slow down and open my fist
Vampires, growing closer, are fierce
My body was hidden in the shadows
But it did nothing to hide my horror
All I could do was hide in the night

I continued to hide in the night
I knew they could smell my blood
Watching them run past me filled me with horror
To keep from screaming, I bit my fist
I knew I had to keep to the shadows
My thoughts turned fierce

To keep from falling, my feet were fierce
I ran so fast through that night
Remembering to keep to the shadows
All I could hear was the pounding of my blood
I felt it still clenched in my fist
I could no longer feel the horror

With a plan in my head, I felt no horror
My successful smile turned fierce
I shifted the black gem to my other fist
I continued to run through the night
With my speed, they might smell my blood
Even if I was hiding in the shadows

My fierce thoughts were filled with shadows
Without horror, there was no fear in my blood
With the gem in my fist, I continued home though the night
