by Victoria Smee

Supernatural, paranormal
Spooky, cooky things
I've been here all my life
Searching for darkness
The vampire's bloody kiss
The werewolves howl at the silvery moon

I seek horror
I seek pain
To watch the walls weep blood
To see the monsters come for you
To tear you apart
Feast on your flesh
Rip out your heart

The darkness calls to me, wherever I go
I turn it to you
We are enemies
Yet I hold the darkness
I keep it in my hand
The monsters are with me
They come for you
