Flesh of My Flesh PT 3PT 3: Abandonment
Cabal glanced at the ceiling over his head, hearing the wind rattle the ancient frames of the church around him. While the sound of the storm had pulled him away from his reading, he was grateful for the distraction. What Lilith had written – what he could imagine of her treatment and reactions were angering.
How could the church not know what she was? When did all this take place that vampires and dhampirs weren’t common knowledge?
The only plausible thing that came to mind was this occurred shortly after vampiresella was introduced into the world. The virus decimated vampire numbers. Early on, the vampires who survived the humans’ biological weapon didn’t realize it had also revived the race’s ability to procreate, and not just with their own kind.
It could very well be that Lilith was born in that initial flux and her human mother would have no clue.
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
