Chapter 1

Vampire

She is of silk
Her skin is milk
With eyes of sea and hair of ground
Her slender fingers spider-wound

But her body is cold;
it has no soul.
And it is still, like harp strings at night,
Waiting for my entrance, my bite.

Just a Needle
You are just a needle
You go in
And I feel it
so which of us is really numb?

You're just the needle
It doesn't matter how deep you sink into my skin.
You still won't feel me.
But I'll still want more.

Fragile
My belly is a swollen envelope
Its insides swim, filled with sharks
They flow down to my ankles
where they bite from the inside
My blood bites back.

And I think of your fragile arm in my hands;
the bones don't deserve to be broken,
but it would be so easy.

There are just some minor grammar mistakes and phrasing that could be easily corrected. Other than that, I'm really enjoying ...

Laraine Smith: I was also a victim of verbal, physical, and sexual abuse by my father. One time, he threatened to beat me with a belt. This story enabled me to talk about it. Thank you. :)

graceeming: I thought the whole story form the beginning was captivating, it really gave you the hunger that you were longing for in a story. Yes the end was not something that I enjoyed, but I recommend this to anyone that enjoys fantasy of this type.
