lie with you

lie with you


if you let me
lie with you
lie with you

lie with you

if you let me lie with you
that will pull me through


he could never have imagined
the power of craving, of longing

simply to know she had walked
into the room
simply to smell the skin
of her shoulder and arm

to slip into her bed to hold her
to be held and lie skin to skin


to lie in the sheets of another
to lie together
as if nothing else could matter

it was the living of that lie
those sheets she said carried
the smell of them

into the next day
when they were apart
but always together
in sheets left behind


i fell in love with you
while you were still
searching for you

and i managed only
to get in your way
to you

but i could not lie to you
to lie with you
