Clever Dreams

“I Can Hear You Sin.”

I can smell our lust in the dark air above our bed,
You lay beside me, in your perfect ruthless beauty,
If only you knew what I really am, I hope you never see inside my clever dreams.

You don’t really know me, your beauty was so eager to trust me,
My brutality was so thirsty to protect you, and now a demon has an angel willingly in his possession.
You are my trophy, my obsession,
But I hope you never discover that you completely control me,
You are all of me, all that is left of me.
In my dreams I have captured you a thousand times,
I hope it is just a matter of time until I lay my hands on you in the daytime,
But until that time, I will hunt you each night,
