Awakened to the horror of discovery
The pending arm of hell reaching for my most precious
Powerless in it's grasp
I crumble under the intense grip
Shielding my beloved
The hammering blows strike my back
Threatening to split my pounding heart in two

As the horror subsides
I hold my treasure close
Afraid to release it from my safety
Untrusting of those, I once did
Soon this will fade quietly into a distant memory of past, learnt lessons
But for today my treasure, my beloved and
most precious will sleep securely in my arms
