The creature of the darkness
Leads an endless life of despair.
The horrors of an eternity
Captured in that haunted stare.

Only on All Hallow's Eve
May he venture undetected.
His luminous skin and unusual ways
Pass by us unsuspected.

He wishes to befriend you.
He will charm you with his grace.
He'll marvel at the glorious beauty
Of your mortal face.

Alas, this friendship cannot last.
His control cannot endure.
You accept your death with open arms,
Entranced by his allure.

That dreadful night time hunger.
That wretched, lustful thirst.
The insatiable desires
Of the one forever cursed.

Ashamed of his regrettable acts,
Brushing off a blood-stained tear,
He returns unto his resting place
To sleep until next year.

The creature of the darkness
Leads an endless life of despair
Clinging to a mortal self,
Which simply is not there.

I liked the repetition...that's what kinda completes it, gives that story-feel. That was the special touch. I like! :)
