Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No money made, no harm meant.
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
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.
