Your fingers slowly push on my shoulder,
And lower back,
Quietly pulling me closer to you.
Until our hearts are pressed together,
Beating as one.
In your arms,
I feel protected.
Your lips slowly press on my forehead
Fingers tiptoeing through my hair
Speaking love through your touch
Until I understand
In your arms
I am safe from myself.
Yes I am protected from the monsters in the shadows
From my imaginary demons
But I know how to hold a sword
I do not need protection from that.
I need protection from the thoughts swirling through my head at 2 AM
Wild and free
Unafraid of me
But afraid of love
And so you are my greatest weapon
Because in your arms
I feel loved
So please always hug me
Pull me close to you
Because these ugly creatures spitting evil words in my head
Are no match for the way I feel in your arms.
