The twilight zone

In an intimate encounter under dark foreboding skies
She lost more than she’d imagined to his green hypnotic eyes
As his teeth pierced alabaster to extract the crimson dew
She succumbed to evil forces and her life began anew

When she’d ventured out that evening she was looking for some fun
Just a little drink and dancing, maybe find “that special one”
Then he took her hand and led her in a waltz around the room
To the loveseat in the garden where she met her dreadful doom

Now she hangs around the nightclubs cannot bear to face the light
Finds a different man to feed her through her sweet exotic bite
Just be careful, you may meet her if you travel home alone
Then you’ll join her in her travels through the famous twilight zone!
