I held my ugliness in for a long time.
It roiled and foamed acid
until there was no stopping the hole from which it leaked.
So I loosed it,
only to find it was not the hideous creature I had imaged.
It was human.

it never was ugliness
just a form of beauty you couldn't label or identify

I've got ugly. We all do. Perhaps it becomes less of a vampire when exposed to light :)
