Twilight in Haiku

By , Sylvania, OH
I am abandoned
It's better for my mother
If I just go away

God, I hate it here
It's wet and cold and boring
Nobody likes me

Wait-what's that? Who's he?
God, he's gorgeous. And alone!
I want to learn more.

Damn. He's rude and mean!
But-I'm dreaming about him.
And God, he's gorgeous.

There's something that draws
Me like a moth to the flame
Fatally pretty

I think-could it be?
But that's so impossible!
He couldn't-could he?

Hands cold to the touch.
Godlike strength in those thin arms.
Never in the sun.

Vampire! Vampire! I
Know that you are a vampire!
I can handle this!

No, no I cannot.
Those vamps are scaring me, Edward.
They want to eat me!

Safety. Protection.
Ice-cold barriers from harm.
I lounge in his care.

A single phone call
Shattering the illusions
I've lost. He's got her.

Beloved mother
Helpless in this unseen force
With love I trapped you

It's all I can do
I must give myself for her
I can't ever win

Racing to meet death
Feet trodding on promises
Trading life for life

Oh, cruel deception!
How could I have been so stupid?
Death extends his hands...

Avenging angel
Emerging from shattered glass
But it is too late

White hospital walls
Smiling doctors and nurses
Thank God for safety!

Icy cold hands touch
My waist erupts in goosebumps
All is right again

I really liked it!!! If you like Twilight you should read "The Guardian". It is Twilight fan fiction that I wrote! It's called The guardian! Here is the summary:

Summary for This Series: The Guardian is a series that will take you out of the harsh world around you, only to throw you into an even harsher one. Isabella was once a guardian angel, but after the decision to show herself to her assignment ultimately kills the girl she was suppose to be guarding, her wings are take... (more »)

I like it very nice. I can tell you actually might have read the book. Wich is awesome. It's anoying when people talk or complain about twilight when you can tell all they know about it is from whta they have heard not from what they have read.
