501 – Remember

I can still see it
In my mind’s eye,
And full of life.

I can still feel
The gaping hole inside
Where it used to beat
Before I met you.

I can still touch
The scars you left behind
When you ripped me open
And sucked my blood dry.

I can still remember
Your beautiful dark eyes,
And the sharp line
Of your vampire smile.

I can still remember
The warm sun on my face
And the lost beauty
Of a blue summer sky.

The red hunger calls,
But I will never listen.
Not while I can still remember
I used to have a heart.
