Memories fade But the pain echoes Wounds heal But Fears reign The way forward Muddled with Self-Doubts And Disillusionment Of Lessons Learnt And those We need to Un-Learn The road ahead lies Like a mirage So close And yet so far Dwelling in Self-imposed Prisons Like good little girls Suffering becomes Our medal of courage Disturbing the silence Of the tombs in our heart When all is said and done We only have misery for company For we have been ...

Here begins my love affair with the most beautiful but ferocious uber VAMP... She walks in flames of ruby red fire, Like the sun bursting in volcanic lava, Her orange vermillion hair Drapes her luscious neck, Like the consummation of passion & desire.
