Vampires in Havana

I was soul searching

When I fell in love

With Victor

Two years ago

In Havana


I was accepted as a Companiera

A Comrade


Holding hands tenderly

Listening to romantic Boleros

At Casa de la Trova


Walking on uneven streets in Centro

At midnight

The full moon shone on us

Vampires in Havana


I felt love

A slow warm

Glow creeping

All over


I looked into his face

His laughing eyes

Bewitching smile

His mixed blood

Intensity and passion
