The Collector

It didn’t take him long

to earn her trust.

Maybe it was that smile,

or how he got her out of a bind.

He was the boy from her dreams-

a friend who fought off her nightmares.

He surfed the currents that

snaked around the worlds,

collecting lost souls to shelter.

And hers was oh so lost.
