Nights like this

It's nights like this
The ones where there is nothing
No lights
No sounds
No one about
That i feel you the most

Your gaze is on my skin
It begs for my attention
The air is disturbed by
your sweet breath
Making me dizzier with
every lung full I take

Your presence traps me
My body is no longer mine
to command
My mind can scream til
my heart stops
But it's no use to fight

Everything I was
You've claimed
Everything I am
Is yours
Everything I will be
You'll own

It's nights like this
That I wish for death
I hope for suffocation
I pray for a bullet

Anything to take me and my heart
Away from your claws
Away from your killer smile
Away from the world you've taken

You may own my life
My heart may beat for you
But I own my death
And my heart stops for me
