Heedless Nights by Louise Worthington

No comments
Too possessive to be a friend. Demanding to the point of being an acquired taste. He calls my name and expects me to come running and even if I close my eyes and try to ignore him, I hear him and feel him. God, I hate that.
He never stays in the morning. That side of the bed is empty. Night-time is his kingdom, always liking me best in moonlight, the silhouette of me. Away from crowds. He likes me all to himself.
Touch like a marble floor.
I could sleep inside a hearse he makes me so very tired, one night after another vigil
Tick the fucking clock. Night comes around again and I dread the pointless bedtime
routine. He likes me feeble, broken, weepy, delirious.
If only I could sleep.
