just lie with me tonight

just lie with me
tonight
let me believe this
fantasy
one more time
that love can
happen
and that love
exists
flourishing
outside of fairytale
slideshows
about positive
human behaviors

just keep the negative
thoughts planted
deep and away
at least tonight
that’s all i
want
i want to focus on
running my fingertips
upon your softer skin
while you actually
look at me
with yearning
not disdain

but we know
the unstoppable conclusion
will always be
human failures
victory

man
cannot love
but only himself
because we so quickly and
with ghosts and whispers
forget
the kiss
the tenderness
the isolated moment
where we forgot
our regret and
pain
and replaced it
with this

just lie with me tonight
