Every hair always right in its place
Every eyelash hiding your vile gaze
Every boy watching you flounce by
Every decision as quick as a dragonfly
You can’t hide it when your soul seethes it
When you get on people’s nerves like grit
You can’t speak without spitting poison
Not to mention you won’t listen to reason
Every outfit ironed and never crumpled
Every step you take but never have stumbled
Every heartbeat is as vengeful as the last
Every word you said is “just in the past”
You can’t hide it when you hurt someone
When you say those backhanded words for fun
You can’t hide it when your eyes burn red
While you bleed someone’s spirit dead
Every inch of skin is always flawless
Every word will sound just that lawless
Every girl hating the rustle of your skirt
Every person realizing you can hurt
You can’t hide it when you live this way
Acting like a vampire day-to-day
You can’t hide it when you feed off of pain
And tend to disappear into your crimson rain
Every fingernail painted just right
Every star lights up in your night
Every tide lapping obediently at your heels
Every person knows how bad it feels
You can’t hide it when you are a leech
Sucking them white like they’d been bleached
You can’t hide it when you’re thrown in the fire
Finally ending the reign of the everyday vampire

The author's comments:
A lot of girls have no heart at this age and seem to leech off of other people's pain. I feel the agony, and wonder if the creatures of Twilight are too fantastic, and if vampires are just everyday beings in the form of popular middle school girls.

Thank you, I appreciate the feedback. I don't try to make things rhyme perfectly, but if it's awkward...I should work on it, then. Thanks again.

The rhyme scheme is a little awkward, but the theme is great! It really does fit a lot of girls in middle school (and high school). The comparison sounds cliched at first, but you use it in such a different way that it's not anything like other "vampire comparisons."

Why thank you! I tried hard to get that across, too. :)

Thank you. As a teenager, I guess middle school is kind of a lot of stark black and white, with nothing in between, and that's what got me writing: the dark, evil side of the teenagers in middle school.
