Peaceful Being

Pale faced,
cold skinned,
cold blooded creature

Able to run faster than any animal,
stronger than any werewolf
mysterious eyes
illuminating pale skin
All things that have captivated me

I as a mortal, You as an Immortal
How crazy it sounds,
Two unlike beings
Perfectly meant to be
I would never have envisioned it so

I used to think a creature like you,
was abnormal
unrealistic
heartless
chaotic and violent

But i was wrong,
incredibly
Mistaken.

The movies I watched,
the books I read
were not even close
to accurately describing your kind

They capture you as a monster,
ripping the hearts of others,
always having the thirst for
Blood
killing everything in its view

Again, they misunderstood
You are the most peaceful,
serene creature I know



Your golden eyes give me that composure
Your touch is nothing but harmless
Your face glowing like the stars above

You've helped me through the struggles with my family
Never leaving my side
Provided me with love and attention
and still loving me even though
you know I’m completely wrong for you

But still, you are
The only selfless and sympathetic being
that has entered this world.
You have proven them all wrong.

I love how you took something that you really love and turned it into a beautiful poem! I think you captured the feelings of loving such a powerful and mysterious being perfectly! The only line that is a little confusing is when you say "You've helped me through the struggles with my family" I haven't read Twilight in a while, so I may not remember this part, so maybe make it a little clearer? Great job! :)
