My Lies - Poem by Kristina Louisa Carr

I love the way you call my name
My whole being you seem to claim
But I also know that my reality with you is untrue
Right now in my life - you're just passing through
I live in a castle bursting of unfulfilled dreams
And nothing is truly the way it seems

I wish I could find true love and surrender
But right now that thought is only a contender
In fact - today I am not after change at all
Keeping my sanity may be a close call
Today - tonight I just want to lay my head in your lab
Avoiding thoughts of tomorrow like a booby trap

A future with you in my life is just a momentary vision
And embracing the truth hurts like a bad collision
I crave being with you like a vampire needs blood to survive
But we only play house like conducting a test drive
All is o.k. I guess - so let me lie to myself a bit longer
I know I have to get back to the truth one day - when I'm stronger
