Drabble poem for open_on_sunday Challenge #64 - Poetry

No drabble fic this week, just a poem. But who is the 'author'. Is it Xander about Spike or Spike about Xander?

Author:darkhavens
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Rating: G
Spoilers: None

My Love

I lie beside you as you sleep,
and wonder if I'll ever be enough
to stop those ancient nightmares
as they creep
amongst the sweeter dreams you often tell me
over coffee, eggs and blood.
I know we are a most unlikely pair
the misfit and the monster
but we work
...somehow.
It started out as comfort,
mutual drunks and shared self pity,
but it changed
so slow we hardly even noticed
...till we kissed.
And then we played avoidance games
for weeks and weeks.
But now I lie here waiting for the man I love to rise.
My love...
