I wanted someone to call
me at midnight, out
of breath (out of
luck). Telling me they
need to talk.

But not you.

"This probably comes
three hours too late
but please,
listen anyways."

You placed your tongue
on my throbbing heart,
eager to nurse off
the life of another.

You said: "Shred skin to find the bone",
I had shed my skin, lulled my
bones into a weeping silence
and I still tasted disappointment
in your kiss.

I've heard your eyelids creak
when you open and shut them.
I know what hides behind the glass
and I do not plan
on coming back.

Is there a cultural reference I may have missed? In other words, would the poem mean something different if I'd read a certain book or watched a certain movie or TV show?

Nope, I didn't put any specific references in this piece.

For some reason I thought there might have been a reference to a vampire series, though not I'm entirely certain why after re-reading.

My bitterness
tasting fresh again
A heady cruel bile
Sipped, remembering.
You never wanted
to learn.
I tired of wishing
to teach,
Gulped,
Recapped.
Put away.
I turn back
to the path you
can't share.
Your loss,
probably
acid sharp
on your tongue.
