I Dream of Oceans

The Vampire Reveries, 3

by Roberto Sanhueza

Right before
the first sun ray lights the world
as the wooden lid falls
over my pale face
and undeath takes me
once more in her arms
I dream

I dream of oceans
red oceans of crimson flow
to quench my thirst
to ease my pain

But before a single drop
can touch my lips
I am dead again
for one more day
for one more death
