I laid in your arms that night feeling secure and wanted.
I laid there as the storm raged outside.
Twitching every so often when the thunder got too loud.
Tossing slightly because I wanted to sleep
but not really because the moment would be over with too soon.
Enjoying the embrace although knowing the truth.
Listening to you snore slightly.
Allowing you to adjust in your sleep
as long as you stayed wrapped up with me.
Feeling the warmth.
Listening to the beating of your heart.
Feeling as if I am needed.
Just being in the moment and enjoying the lie.
