True Lies

DSC_0103 - Version 2

I found you lurking in (MY)space

our relationship began with confusion

moved on to peel away layers of illusion

progressed to disillusion

and yet

still

I can’t seem to turn away

 

I cursed you

refused to converse with you

deleted, refuted, denied your cyber presence

all the while knowing that if you had skin

I was embedded underneath it

pushing your buttons

inflating member(s)

pumping up the volume of your deceitful heart

pretending (to myself)

that I was special

 

and all the while

you play(ed) me

and I play(ed) you

neither of us wanting to let go

 

I never bought the grill

(I did buy that “something satin with lace”)

I never trusted your promises

although I wanted to believe your true lies

 

so here we lie years later

volumes of heart space occupied by smoke

mirroring each other

never making the connection

alone

with our fantasies
