You come to me in the night

Sleepily, I reach for you

But your spirit eyes

are cold and vacant

I retreat


Claws extended

Lamb of the Apocalypse

You snarl and growl

 words, as steel  bullets

penetrate deep

Over and over until I feel nothing

but pain


Released and spent

You conduct damage assessment


 demons gone

 the door slams


I stumble to my bed

Where passion once lived

and warmth


and love


Unable to comprehend



Once, you were my sanctuary

as I was yours


Night rain comforts me

Night birds sing to me

Follow the trace of a shooting star


Finally, I sleep
