I crawled into the space behind your back
and realised that it was the place I needed to be;
not out there amongst the madness;
amongst the lost souls who flock to this hollow page
to echo their ills and feed off scraps of sadness.
No, I need to be here, with you,
where I am safe, where I am treasured,
where my heart can beat and my lungs can fill
with the innocence of your sleep
and where the space between us is no more.
