POETRY You make me feel safe

Folded here neatly
I fit into your embrace
I can hear your heart
Beats of life – a part of me
Your body feels warm to touch
And I feel your breath
waking up emotions
I never knew were there

You make me feel safe
Away from the world
Away from the chaos
Away from myself
And how I feel safe
Here with you. In your arms

Eyes closed in sleep
I watch over you
Smiling, possessive
Wishing you’ll never leave
Tho’ I know someday
Those chains will come
to take you away from me
so I sail into dreams
Fleeting time, worth eternity

Away from the world
Away from the chaos
Away from myself
Oh how I feel safe
Here with you in my heart

Bridge
And tho’ that time will come,
When memories of now will be all I have
I bear no regrets, no pain, no grudge
Because then as now, I will remember
this peace of my heart holding on to you
knowing you’ll always be here to take me
away

Away from the world
Away from the chaos
Away from myself
God, how I feel safe
Here with you in my head.
