For a lot of people, people I know and people I don’t know, this is all they can see. It consumes them, overwhelms them, and destroys them utterly. I used to be one of those people too.
Then, I received a gift. The gift of sobriety & of acceptance, fellowship & gratitude, serenity & purpose and an understanding of my place in this life.
Now, every night as I lay me down to sleep, especially when I am wrapped in your arms tightly, touching your shoulders with my tender lips over and over again. I know life is a dream. Sleep well again and again with me my love, and I’ll keep the vampires from your door.
