Short Lies

I dedicate my verses to you,

I circumscribe my kisses to our shared history.

I hug you wishing that my embrace can be timeless.

 

But I know I write for myself,

that my kisses are simply kisses.

When I hug you at night, I know my body will ask me to turn around

and my hug will inevitably end.

 

I enjoy poetry and lying to myself

so I like believing in the truthfulness of the first stanza.
