I stalk in the shadows
And I walk in the night,
Fearing and yearning for
The strength of the light.

I watch life around me
Filled with bright red
Unaware of the danger
That comes from the dead.

I touch your soft skin
So soft and so sweet
I kiss your sweet lips
As if tasting a treat.

So gentle I seem
So caring and warm -
But the Hunger inside me
Rolls like a storm.

I kiss the great beat
That is thumping so strong,
So tempting and luscious
Feels right though it's wrong.

Again I have taken
What's not mine to take.
Once sorrow would fill me
Now regret takes its place.

I'm losing myself
In these shadows of death.
One day I'll be gone,
The beast will be left.
