Insulin

So do these numbers mean your blood is sweet?
Four times as sweet as mine when last I checked.
And do they mean you have no use for feet,
Or sight, or healing wounds? But I suspect
Statistics are more lies than truth in this.
For once I tasted of your bloodied lip,
Ate copper's tang with every vampire kiss,
Then soothed the wound with trembling fingertips.
