He whispers her name like a prayer
Feverish dreams unheard
She sleeps within her waking bubble
Unconscious to the colors
"Favor me a glance my love
Shamed by your words
I only fight for what's mine."
Thrown apart, creeping elsewhere
An untoward touch here
A monster weeping there
And I was the only one who saw you that night!
He wakes to her silent breathing
She swats an imaginary fly
He hooks his thigh over a slender leg
She wishes him to die.
