I have no experience with vampires, they are just the new phenomenon. I have read about them since before a vampire was something to fall in love with and it has become some what of an escape.
I think the reason why there is so much attention on them is not because of the danger(although quit apparent) it is one of jealousy. We want so much to be entangled in a world where we are bigger than the everyday mundane lives that we all seem to live. We want to know we live for something more than to just live and die. The vampire is seen as a creature not apart of this world but merely visiting.The outsider who can bite back.
We want so badly to be in such control, to have such ability, that we familiarize ourselves with the vampire and slowly but surely play them down to a level we would be comfortable with. Comfortable enough to talk to, to touch, to befriend. I haven't figured out if this is a good thing or a bad thing yet but one thing is for sure I prefer them as the mystery they are.
If they were in such close reach to me, would I reach back? Would you? It makes you think how much you would be willing to give up to join something you only think you know.
We are frozen in such ideas, thoughts, and stories. constantly digging and hoping we find more. But at the same time we live these lives that are not something we want. Reality collides into us day after day and all we do is shove it back because we don't want what it offers. We want something we don't know. So I guess what I'm getting to is not weather they exist or not, or even if they are something we don't want to come across or someone we want to love, but why we would want to be apart of it and what we do for it?
