Quoted from Season 2, episode 5 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer:

Angel: "This isnt some fairy tale, when I kiss you, you don't wake up from a deep sleep and live happily ever after."

Buffy: "No, when you kiss me I want to die."

Poem dedicated to Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV series)

(Written as if by Buffy to Angel)

Two hearts,
but only one beats inside.
But we both feel, touch,
We're both some how dead, yet alive.
In an instant you're here,
In a blink you're gone.
How can this feel so right,
But I know its wrong.
Your flesh is cold,
My skin is warm,
flowing with blood,
It will only do you harm.
But it was love from the beginning,
We both knew it to be true,
Though I tried to forget it
And forget about you.
You were a shadow in the night,
A cold gust of wind,
But with it you brought light,
Hope, a hand to lend.
You were there when I needed you.
You were always by my side,
Never far away,
Some where watching in the night.
I know that as long as you're nearby,
It doesn't matter what you are, what you've done,
I know that I'm safe,
You're like the bullet to my gun.
Forbidden love,
Dangerous lust,
But you are good I know
And someone I trust.

No this is not a fairy tale,
when every kiss drives us deeper,
into a love we can not control,
into pure pleasure and happiness,
that takes away your soul.
No, with every kiss it gets harder,
to know that I can't have you as mine,
With every kiss,
I want to die.

Though we can not be together,
I will love you forever.
My Angel.

Buffy is one of my favorite shows!! Buffy and Angel were an iconic couple. Their emotions towards each other were immensely deep. Your poem is a great representation!

Thank you so much. Glad I could please a fellow fan with it. I started rewatching the series on Netflix from the beginning and they keep bringing me to tears. :(

Gosh I know right! I cry so hard until my eyes get puffy and red....every time! It's a beautiful thing when you know that there is that deep love out there in this crazy universe that people experience and share. Yes it's a show, but every show has some type of truth to it.

yea but tv shows and movie romances are way exaggerated. Those kind of loves rarely if ever exist in the real world. mainly cuz no one is that perfect, men are not that chivalrous and those situations that make their love so epic do not happen. but its great to watch and yearn for. Audrey, yes so many memories. I used to watch this show and Angel and charmed every day after school and stuff. I miss these shows dearly. Along with Xena and Hercules which I am also rewatching. Gotta love netflix.

Well I can tell you that I have found that deep love. We've been together for 6 years and we have know each other for 7 years. And that's just on the surface.

Of course it's on TV and movies being "exaggerated" because people have a very difficult time finding someone who will love them back forever and be passionate towards them forever. So they have to imagine.

Epic love isn't for the weak people. It will try to tear you apart till there's nothing left. But when it's epic love nothing can hurt it. Instead, it grows.

My husband and I aren't perfect.....but neither are Buffy and Angel. Still, the love grows even bigger every day.

yes u are right. :) but its harder finding that love, you go through a lot of the wrong ones before you find the right one, and I've been through a lot of wrong ones, just hoping this one is the right one. There's just so many loves in fiction that seem so much more romantic and epic then any love in real life or any love i have known, it doesnt diminish the love i have though.

Yes! I went through a few that I thought would have been the one. It's crazy because when I stopped looking, he came to me instead. :) You are well on your way to finding your epic love. Your definitely thinking the right things. :)

I loved that show and your writing about it brings back memories. Your poetry is thick with emotion and really captures the intensity that was Buffy and Angel. Great piece of work.

Wow, Nikki... what a sweet poem. it really could be a tribute from Buffy to Angel. I imagined them both just now as I read it. Wonderful and heavy in romance and feelings. Buffy and Angel fans will love this. As always, your imagination is at its usual amazing and original best. I'd have never thought of doing a poem like this. Heh.

You rock. :)

Thanks Cathy! I've just been rewatching the show and I forgot how much I loved it and their love story, so sad. I am still in the beginning episodes so the saddest has yet to begin. But the one episode where she finds out he is a vampire and they realize they cant really be together and both should walk away and they kiss at the end, shes wearing the cross necklace he gave her and she doesnt realize it but it presses against his chest as they kiss, and she says something about this being painful and walks away, and they show how the cross burned into his skin...he didnt even stop kissing her though I'm sure that was quite painful. So beautiful and sad, I got all teary eyed lol and I just wanted to write something to get those emotions out. I feel like I wish I could do something for them, and a poem is about all i can do so there it is. Thanks for reading!

You really love the show. Sometimes they can seem more real and we can relate to them more than people in real life. I grew up with Buffy. She is kickass awesome, and Angel made the show even more than it already was. A forbidden love side story was bound to happen and it did. I miss those shows, and Willow and Zander and all the gang. LOL. Me a fan. :P
