Poetry: Ever To Abide

I’m not the demons
that died in your bed
I’m not the terrors
to which you are wed.

I’m not the evils
which seek your ill
I’m not the poisons
that choke you still.

I’m not the nightmares
of fear and of dread
I’m not the destroyers
living in your head.

No, my love
I am a warrior
a permanent dispatch
angel earthbound
I have
fixed positions
within, without,
above, around.

Ever to be
and forever
by your side
never to leave
ever to abide.
