All I Need

woman-sad-fantasy-goth-948695All I need
Is your lies
All dressed up
Like make believe
Fascinate me
With my foolish heart
That hears truth
When you deceive
This trusting soul
That longs for more
Stop this pain
This dreadful throb
So insistent
It makes me scream
When all I need
Is a slip of the tongue
A minor inconvenience
A fragment of you
Twisted in a rhetoric
Familiar as my own skin
A turn of phrase
This subtle subterfuge
So poignant
The lie so complete
That it swallows all else
And leaves me breathless
Waiting for more
But getting so much less
Than what I really need.
