After A Year We’ve dated through all 4 seasons now. The honeymoon phased into whatever comes after. Lying still as I’m in the morgue next to you, shrouded in moonlight, I wonder if you are bored. If the tiara I’ve been wearing all this time tinged cloudy and murky over a fortnight. How quickly passion can drip from our fingertips, leaving us bewildered at its temporary and fickle heart. I want to whisper in your ear that you were born to be mine and I’ve been building myself into the witch of your dreams for many days and many nights.
