Your love is my harbor.
The incessant gnawing in my sleep,
these ideas fly around in my head
Biting my brain tearing my gray, neurological flesh.
I scream in agony in the night
and have only your arms around me as comfort.
Your hands caress and soothe my body
urging me to sleep
As I lay beside you.
You cradle my heart
and prevent it from ripping out of my chest.
As the endless horror flick of my memories
Play through my mind on an endless loop.
You are there to regulate my breath,
Inhale the pain I exhale
as I try to breathe after my torment.
To awake and see your face
is like to see a peaceful shore
After being tossed and turned
in a violent, tumultuous hurricane.
You will always be my harbor after the storm.
