You visit everyday,
Bedtime on the dot.
Your lullaby sucks;
Don't become a children's author.

A shiver goes down my spine;
You climb into bed beside me.
I feel your fingers wrap around my waist and neck.

You hold me tender.
We're intertwined.
I'm experiencing something

Different. I am too young for this.

For most this is a beautiful act.
They wait years to become this close, but for us it is a sin.

You take my breath away.
I'm not even attracted to you,
but I can't leave you be.

Each night I have an affair with Anger. Adults long to be in touch with their emotions. I'm a child. I've done it. It's unconventional, yes,but
He takes my breath away.
