I'll kiss you goodnight,
Just listen to my heartbeat,
Bad dreams I will fight.

We'll watch the sky lose light,
Sharing warmth under the sheet,
I'll kiss you goodnight.

I'll keep you safe throughout the night,
Electric feel where bodies meet,
Bad dreams I will fight.

Blankets keeping us from winter's bite,
Warm hands and cold feet,
I'll kiss you goodnight.

What a beautiful sight,
Beating hearts and shared heat,
Bad dreams I will fight.

We'll stay until the day turns bright,
All the odds will have been beat,
I'll kiss you goodnight,
Bad dreams I will fight.

A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.

Really, this is a very good poem, but the rhyming does seem to be a little bit stretched and forced, making the last parts of the lines not quite as well as they could otherwise, but still a great poem!

It was a really good idea for a poem, but it seemed to me as redundant and simple.  The repeats of the lines seemed to have no particular meaning or rhythm... but definately keep writing.

This was really good. It's refreshing to see a male poet for a change. Keep it up.
