Just watched the Bonnie & Clyde two part special

Take me down in a rain of bullets, gunfire, and blood

I’m too notorious for your love

A dark force, slut, a thief

Daddy let me drag you down into the flames

your passion

the way you hold me close when I’m cold

your kiss

the way I feel safe when I’m in your arms

the rush I get when you touch my skin

the way your hand always finds mine

the way you let me use you as a leg rest and hold you while you work

asking for my opinion

caring about what I say

your soft skin

the way you say you’ll miss me when we go away

you’ll be waiting for me when you get back

the way I want to be with you every day

All these and so much more are the things that make me stay
