The thirst is endless,

the hunger to feel alive.

Eternal shadows, hunting. 

Aspasía S. Bissas

This haiku was inspired by my favourite fiends (vampires, of course), but reading it over again I realized it could also be about the Vashta Nerada, one of the more terrifying creatures on Doctor Who. Feel free to picture either as you read.
