The lies we tell ourselves. The lies we tell each other.

In the interest of time

as the winter snowfall picks up

into blizzards and wrecks

 

Tell me

 

If it’s tonight

you spend with me

with the company of the thought of a lost love

 

Your former and My was-meant-to-be

in mind | as we hold each other

and lie to each other, obsessively

A lot of ghosts in the relationship. An enjoyable read.
