Like a predator lurking in the dark, you surprised me.
With razor sharp talons that sunk into my soul
And teeth of sharpened ivory, strong yet elegant
Gripped at my neck in tender suffocation
Like a predator lurking in the dark, you found me.
Like the swift winds of Fall, you breezed through my heart
tickling with tendrils my ventricles to ease the suffering
Brushing along the scarred tissue beneath leathery skin
You took me by the hand, and lead me to my slumber
Like the swift winds of Fall, like a shot through my heart.
You were the song of angels flooding my every thought
Invading dire moments with hope and tranquility
Your voice makes life like lemonade, so sweet
With a bite at the end, with a chill in my cheeks.
You were the song of angels, in every thought, entranced.
Like the warmth of a midsummer’s night, you sheltered my head
In the crest of your breast, stroking my hair with your radiance.
You lull me to sleep in this bed you’ve made.
With your linen and throws and the down plumed and billowed
Like the warmth of a midsummer’s night, you let me rest my head.
