Labyrinthine

lies

Lie to me like you love me
As if your only thought at the end of the day is being wrapped up in me
Like all of the happily ever after’s of fairy tales are possible
Lie to me like
Shakespeare’s tales of love
Like Teddy Pendergrass’ voice
And Dr. J’s arc
Lie to me like you love me
purely
Like chocolate’s first kiss
And a freshly fallen snow
Or summer rain
Tell me it all but
Know that I expect it to
Be a
lie
