nighttime screams

stalk me, dammit:
hide in my bed tonight;
just pull the covers up
over you; there's only a
little light --
I won't notice a thing,
until the rush of your breath
on my neck
makes my heart flutter
and take wing;

stalk me, dammit:
don't just walk around
in my dreams;
walk into my room,
give me a good reason
for all of these
nighttime screams.
