Underneath (10 MWC)

Cover Image

Underneath you is where I always dreamt I’d be

Skin against skin, quietly embracing under the cloak of twilight

Our hearts forever entwined

Creating the illusion that we were one entity

United in our love



Underneath you did indeed become my reality

Only not in the way I had endlessly envisioned

There were no loving cuddles to protect my dreams at night

Nightmares of disdainful smirks tainted my dreams in their place

The horror of your hands around my neck when you couldn’t control me taunted my thoughts

Instead of being empowered by your attention, I was now trapped

A second class citizen to you
