My demon

You are my demon,
ever present but absconding,
tantalizingly evasive and alluring,
like a shadow you can never catch
and never do without
but at the same time something of my guardian
leading me on crooked paths
but always in the right direction
to a destiny I seldom am aware of
but which ultimately usually proves true.

At the same time you are possessing me,
without you I am lost and can but long for you,
my worst most painful abstinence,
while I only am fulfilled
when we get on together.

As an intimate relationship
it is more closely knit than any marriage,
rather like as soulmates
making up and adding to each other
like a coin of opposite and different sides.

You are my demon,
I can never do without you,
and as long as you can carry on with me,
I know I shall be whole and prosper,
happily in love with more than just a partner.
