Nightmares and Fairytales

We are the merging of
Nightmares and fairytales.
Destined for each other,
In love or doom.

We were made for each
Other in the most
Primal of ways.
The monster hiding in the
Shadows and the
Beloved hero of
The storybook.

We shouldn’t work,
But we do.
Volatile and calm
Dangerous but safe.
You’re the blessed one
And I’m the damned.

We are the physical
Embodiment of dusk,
Not yet night but
Not exactly daytime either.

I cannot fathom
Living in this ill-fated
World without you
By my side.
Whispering to me in
Verses and song.

I cannot flourish in
This cursed soil
Without your touch
To help me bloom
In the face of the gods.

I believe in my
Broken little heart,
That you and I were
Meant for one another.

I am fated to set
Your soul aflame
As you are to
Quench my thirst.

And our bond
Created in lust and ash,
Sealed in our wretched blood
Is made more beautiful
Because of it.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
