Epic of the Vampire; Introduction

There once was a time

when we lingered not in dark,

where shadows cloak us.

There was once a time

when we greeted the sunlight

warm on living flesh.

That time has since passed.

This tale is of creation,

of our creation.

Readers will know us,

of the legends and the myths,

they will give us name.

We are the vampires,

monsters, the drinkers of blood,

chastised with sacred.

6:30

The world at 6:30

is a different place.

The night’s hush hasn’t gone,

but the sins of the dark have.

One by one, lights turn on,

scattered cars pass the homes.

The world at 6:30

is a different place.

Sleepy commuters leave,

as the darkness departs.

The humid night lingers,

the crowd for the bus grows.

The only world at 6:30

is a different place.
