Becoming an Adult

I watched from the day he was born
so uncertain of himself in space and time
his first reaction was to bite those he loved 

making some effort to consume their flesh
it was never hatred on his part,
but an insatiable desire for love.

He gave others space for fear 
his reaction to them would be
misunderstood, but now that he is grown

his attraction for others is now 

an indiscernible charge, 
a charisma, drawing them close.

It helps that he is good looking
and all those years he ached for love
intrudes on him now, fast and hard.
