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


night crosses out the day
gifting me the warm
safety of you
tighter, please
hold fast
do not be detoured
by my softness
your firm grip
molding my mind
more than my flesh
that strength cancels out
the noise inside
demons rise
in the dark
but possess no magic
to fight against
your command
within this embrace
I bid them
as I dissolve, liquid and dust
against you
within the whisper
of your breath
free to be
the luckiest
