kiss from silver lips

there was tension at first
a heavy, questioning pressure
from your mouth
(should i keep going?)
against my arms
and i gasped and nodded my head
in time with the strums
to savior
the black veil brides song that
makes us feel like
we're not alone
and as you opened your lips
to my skin
i felt the sting and pull
of your blades
and i let the time drip by
in blood

Is this about vampires? If so, then I loved it---especially the line about the Black Veil Brides! Are both the vampire and the victim included in this poem---each other's perspective echoed in the poem?
