For Mary The Queen - Poem by Dan Debello

As you feign
I will not relent
And even as you hold me in this sweet lie
I will smile, in this entrapment of bitter bliss
This is everything I ever wanted
Let's make this pathetic joke last a little longer

You laugh in the face of what you call child's play
I weep in the shadows of the yet another wasted day
But for the sake of your most lovely grace
I'll take your frail hands, and fake another smile
And imagine us in a more acceptable repose

I'll trace the bitter truth around your lips
And see all that I despise in your eyes
I wanted to read what was hidden in your face
And to see what you dreamed and wished for
For maybe secretly, I truly have hoped
That you shared my fantasies and prayers

But until that distant moment of truth
I'll live out each day in this lie
And in my sleep I'll dream of you
Speaking those much awaited words
With your heart beating to mine
