For the Undead

by The Bare-Fanged Contessa

I HAD A VISION you texted me
to say: Heart U TTYL :-E
but in my bloodlust I confess I may have erred

The burning of my thirst lingers
as does the stillness of my smartphone
Is the battery dead? No, it yet lives!

Wonder that your flight beyond the veil of mortality
continues beyond any wireless network apparently
long after the red Moon has risen

Left here to bathe alone in the crimson claret of life
my soul glowing, my heart growing dark
more onyx, more stygian
than my newly cut bangs you haven't seen
to wish you were out there, out of coffin
toasting, burning long, long after sunrise
