Please ignore the smell in the air,

It's the neighbours, really it is.

I want you here,

you are my love.

-

Please ignore the knives on the shelves,

I'm a collector, really I am.

I need you still,

you are my love.

-

Please ignore the blood on my hands,

It's my own, really it is.

I want you now,

you are my love.

-

Come close, my dear.

You, I will not harm.

You, I cannot hurt.

I know you want this too.

-

Come close, my dear.

I know you need me now,

I'll bring you in close

and protect you from there.

-

My arms carress your throat,

your warmth, your heart.

My legs around your waist,

your strength, your taste.

-

A gasp ignites the passion,

the flash of red, our hands turn crimson.

Your knife in me,

My knife in you.

-

Forever intertwined,

I still breathe,

While you sleep,

Protected evermore.
