Red used to be the color of passion. I used to craft all kinds of corny verses about it. I thought, at the time, they were good, but now I can see just how lousy they really were, how lousy I was. You've opened my eyes, luv, made me see things I never saw before even though they were right in front of me. Red used to mean love which used to mean passion, but there's so much more to the passion in this world that isn't necessarily love.

And so much more to the color red, too. It doesn't simply mean love or kisses. Now, when I think of red, I see blood, fresh flowing blood running smoothly from the punctured holes on a victim's neck, just waiting for us to suck it down. Crimson blood swimming along your pale white skin. Blood dripping from your fingertips and from your smile. The blood you fed me, the blood that gave me a new life.

I see blood, and red's never looked so beautiful more. Blood smears your dark, luscious lips as they part in a smile at me. It's a smile that curls through me in spirals, starting at my eyes that receive the picture and running all the way through to my heart and my curling toes. You makes my toes curl, darling. Now that is corny, but it's true too.

You've given me a new leash on life, pet. You've opened my eyes and made me see things that were always right there before me in brand new ways. You've made this world our oyster. Nothing can stop us as long as we stand together, and we'll always be together. Our love is just like our new nature, or my new nature: It's eternal. We'll last forever, and we'll love forever.

The first time I saw you, I thought I'd never seen anything so beautiful. I still think that every night, and I always will. Even dripping with blood, you're so far more beautiful than any girl I've ever seen before. Those mortal lambs to the slaughter, as Angelus calls them, can't begin to hold a candle to your beauty. And I'm wowed again every time I stop and realize that that beauty -- that you -- are mine.

You've given me a new outlook on life. You've opened my eyes and bared my insides, and although I'm not certain what I'm becoming, I know I like this new life. I like it, and I love sharing it with you, my dark Princess. They laughed at me; they scorned and sneered at you. But we're going to spend eternity dancing in their blood and in the blood of their descendants. Ours is going to be a beautiful, eternal love affair, but neither white or black is going to be your color. Red is always going to be your color just as you are always going to be mine and I am always going to be yours.

The End
