Why do we waste time,
hiding it inside?
I want you to be mine.”

Beneath the lie
by me

She walks through the world with veils
layers of disguise
the paste and staples that hold things together
all her malfunction and glee
She likes to play with the trick of the lights
hide within borrowed words
weave together meaning and collapse
with her tongue
confusing him at every turn, or not
but some nights when they collapse into bed
he and his right arm around her
hair tangling up with hers
I think he sees all the mess that is hers
reading between the lines in her skin
but he closes his eyes and kisses her anyway
despite all the cracks in her soul
all her breaking aways
