i haven’t met you yet
but you tell me things
i want to hear.
you love me in places
where least i fear
and for the short parts of time
the thoughts of death
elude my mind

you whisper sweet everythings
in my ear
now my lovely loneliness
will soon disappear
you give the answer
before i ask it
you fulfill the wish
before i pray for it

my companion to perfection
and during this lucid
frame of thought
the bitter liquid
that soothes my discomfort
won’t find its way
down my throat
