A thousand lies

I’d lie to you

A thousand times over and still

Seek your trust with

My grand gestures and

Pretences – you’d be drowning in them

And I would dive in

Deep to pull you to

The edge of rough seas and I then I’d

Kiss your cold wet lips

While you shivered beside me

And I’d whisper that everything

Will be okay –

And deeper still

You’d hear my lie

And trust it anyway…

A thousand times over.
