My Lie

Silently, in my anguish I dreamed of you forever
Indulging my lie to escape endless blue together*
Endlessly, I dreamed a perfect life with you to weather
Perfectly was written this fiction of you in letter
Lovingly lost myself to your illusion verse fetter
Joyfully smiled and played in the delusion to get her
Artfully I lived life with the dream’s escape — my better
You truly stole away my soul’s sordid fate heart’s tether.

*My Lie is in reference to my book Memories of Emily.
