"All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players" - William Shakespeare


Icy fingers clutch at my defenseless skin.
But something stops it right in its tracks.
It can smell you.
And its afraid to come closer.

Because as long as I have you,
I’m safe.
I’m protected.
You are like my own personal insurance company.
No bad thoughts dare to come near when you’re around.

I am eternally grateful to you.
For you have rescued me from the dark.
My knight in shining armor came to help me.
But fairy tales draw thin.
Like a threadbare carpet, worn into nothingness.

And perfection is as a river.
So now I wait for what I know is approaching.
Not to be a pessimist,
but the end is near.
I feel it; I smell it.

For now I will enjoy this peace.
Because life is just one camera frame after another.
And I know someday you will go.
But while you’re here,
I will shiver no more.
