Teeth Grinding

You used to grind your teeth at night,
When you were sleeping next to me,
I used to wonder what gnawed you so,
Why you couldn’t feel free.

I never understood it,
I used to lightly grab your chin,
To keep your teeth from wearing down,
But you’d begin again.

Years and years went by,
It became a background tune,
And now I grind my teeth at night,

To replace,

the lack of,
