Between You and Me

Whatever he says you believe him

to not is to betray him

you want to save him

keep him safe from the space 

he cannot bear to reside in


whatever he does you protect him

you want to mother and seduce him

whatever he wants you offer up to him

trawling the streets for his medicine


you come back

bruised and battered

doesnt matter

if its inside 

or a black eye


you come back

blue black heart

bleeding soul

you come back


love wins he told you

love wins you said

love is a word taken by those to justify the unspeakable

shhh its our secret

dont tell anyone

love made me do it


demons dance in the spaces between the L and the V

between me and you

demons dance in the spaces between O and E

between you and me
