I hide behind you.
I fill my days,
my time
my hopes
my holes
with you.
You’ve become my favorite distraction from reality.
My favorite shield,
my favorite façade.
I drown in your embrace,
letting your caresses blot out the sun.
I shrink into your self
blurring my worries with the rhythm of your lungs.
You are my solace,
the pool I drink from,
my escape from the scalding sun.
