You come to me

You come to me

In the dark

Your scent

Enters me

Your voice

Lullaby of nightmares


My dreams

My eyelids

Your canvas

Primed red


I taste you

In my dreams

My lips whimper


You smudge your pain

Across a mirror

My reflection

Your image

Your malice

Fills in my curves

Breathing gently

I moan

I surrender

Your will binds me


Soft whispers

Words curl

Twisting my hair

In place

Your prison

Placing your malice

In my gut

Our labour of pain


I carry your burden

And feel it grow

Ripping my insides

To shreds

Knowing that soon

I can give it back

My muscles relax

Around you

My breath

Slows down

My skin


My tongue rests

Upon final goodbyes

I weep
