Poem – In Shadow (By Melissa R. Mendelson)

Vampires only live in legends,

but the thirst

to be eternal

burns deep in heart

as cities ignite

with humanity crashing through,

and the sun sets

on another day of history.

And I desire to see

beyond another tomorrow

and live what you dream,

destroy what you fear,

and hold this world

in hands of eternity.
