Day 230 of 365 Project by GrotesqueDarling13 via

swollen heavy sleep
silence broken only
by the soft burr of
your breath
the darkness no longer
but softened
by the safe firm
of your will
no monsters disturb
my slumber
no anxious sleeplessness
infects my eyes
I simply close them
to find dreams
which play like films
across the clean
calm blankets
of my mind
whispering giddy tales
beneath fairy lights
song notes dancing
across my skin
your hands cup
around everything
to keep the storms from
blowing through
to protect and
to hold me
you’ve got me
and I awaken having
truly slept
my cheeks burning
with life
my body surging
to begin a new day
not furtively
but willfully
still somehow held
safe and peaceful
in your grasp
even as your fingers
fall away
I feel them
throughout the day
shielding me
inflaming me
gifting me with
the bubble
I’d never knew
I always wanted
