Internet Book of Shadows, (Various Authors), [1999], at

             Is that you that I hear? 
             Your footsteps on the ground above my head. 
             Your hands apon the headstone that bears my name. 
             You are a dweller in the night!  Beware I bite! 
             On cloak as black as sin, I float, I fly. 
             In hunger burning bright, seaking prey. 
             Life is flowing deep within. 
             I send it bubbling fourth. 
             and then I drink it in again. 
             Another night, never day. 
             Away away, into the dark I flee! 
             where I might hide. 
             waiting for another night. 
             Did you hear? 
             Did you see? 
             Do you flee? 
             Or is that your hand I find near mine? 
             In the dark!  Dwellers in the night! 
             Beware we bite!
