No vampires

It is not what I expected

There is no screaming

(Unless he tickles me)

There is no fist clenched chest punching

I have not been lifted


out of a bath of

My own blood

Sometimes I cry and he holds me

There are no vampires

This is not an addiction

Sometimes we watch Doctor Who

And sometimes we **** on hotel beds like there’s no tomorrow

There is always a tomorrow

Sometimes I slide his hand

Up my skirt

And he says ‘Not now Baby, I’m tired’

And sometimes he finds my hair grips

Down the side of his bed

On his desk

On the windowsill

In his pockets

This love isn’t poetry

It is not thinning paper with

Bleeding ink

Nor dying trees with names carved

Into their bones

It is concrete

It is calendars filled with plans

It is hands in each other’s pockets and my lipstick

Smile staining his pillow.
