Chess 2: Someone Else's Story, as Angel sees it

by meara

Long ago
In someone else's lifetime
Someone with my name
Who looked a lot like me
Came to know
A girl and became vampire
She only had to say
And that's where he would be
Lately
Although the feelings run just as deep
The visits of hers make it impossible to sleep
And yet
I wish it wasn't so
My demon really loved that ho

In a way
It's the demon's story
I don't see myself
As taking part at all
Yesterday
A vamp that I was fond of
Finally could see
The writing on the wall

Sadly
He realized he'd left her behind
And sadder than that he knew she's no longer his kind
And though there's nothing left to say
Would she be good if I pray?

It's all very well to say you fool it's now or never
I could be choosing
No choices whatsoever

I could be
In someone else's story
In someone else's life
And he could be in mine
This curse gives me
A reason to be lonely
Won't take any chances
Further down the line
And if
That vamp I knew should ask my advice
Oh I wouldn't hesitate he needn't ask me twice
Go now!
I'd tell him that for free
Trouble is, the vamp is me
The story is, the vamp is me.
