Lying next to him
by: trista groulx

So safe when he's right there
As if he could slay the demons
The ones that come in the night
Who beg me to join them
Always, they come in the night
Ready to take me away
Somewhere I do not want to go
A place I don't need to see again
Thought I was safe there
With him lying next to me
Thought he could keep the demons away
But the came anyway
Pulling, tugging, begging for me
For me to join them where they stay
How they scare me so
I don't want to be there
I want to be safe in his arms
Safe where they cannot get me
But they're everywhere
Waiting, always waiting to pull me down
Nowhere seems safe now
I'm running out of places to run
