You come to me

You come to me

In the dark

Your scent

Enters me


Your voice

Lullaby of nightmares

Caressing

My dreams


My eyelids

Your canvas

Primed red

Waiting


I taste you

In my dreams

My lips whimper

Silently


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

Vicious

Soft whispers


Words curl

Twisting my hair

In place

Your prison


Placing your malice

In my gut

Our labour of pain

Grows


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

Aglow


My tongue rests

Upon final goodbyes

I weep
