For my final OctPoWriMo post this year, I had to try a Shadow Sonnet. I think it's appropriate today.
Quietly Give up the Light
Bite me, oh dark one; my love, I long for your bite.
Give me your blood, and my soul to you I will give.
Night falls around us, but you are one with the night.
Live you may not, but together forever we’ll live.
Hold me, oh dark one; I’m yours to have and to hold.
Fill me with fire until I have had my fill;
Cold is your skin, but soon I won’t feel the cold.
Still I will love you even when my heart is still.
To my friends I’ll be dead; to my family I’ll be dead too.
Will I miss them? You know, I believe that I will.
You’ll be my family; my only friend will be you.
So much that I have I will lose: I know it is so.
Might I forget the pain in my newfound might.
Light up my heart as I quietly give up the light.
