About the Author

KiKi denee was born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina in 1980. She was very young when she realized that something wasn’t “quite right”. In her words, “all I have ever known is literally a roller coaster of intense emotions that is debilitating and extremely exhausting to maintain”. KiKi started writing when she was 12 as a way to cope with these intense emotions that she had been unable to manage. Writing poetry became her therapeutic release and she continued to write as she has lived through suicide attempts, multiple psychiatric hospitalizations, the onset of hallucinations and seizures- as well as wonderful things such as falling in love and having her son, Levi. What she was not able to comprehend, accept, embrace or explain logically, she was able to grasp and appreciate through words on paper. What was disorganized in her mind, was organized through writing.

Vampyres

2010

No one knocks on my door.
Or window.
No one needs and invitation
Here.

They come
In the middle of the night.
Always.
“Hi Sweetie”, he whispers.
The bright, white light
Shocks me. It hurts.
Doesn’t burn him.

He sighs
Smiles
When my blood starts
To run.
One arm, one hand, one vein, one vial
Is never enough.

It’s no Twilight.
Not Anne Rice’s Lestat.
Not
Pop culture.

Night after night after
Night.
He’s paid
To take my blood.
