After I came to love you, I realized
I can’t breathe when I’m apart from you
Just as I cannot breathe when under water and apart from the air.
Don’t leave me alone?
As long as I am with you, any words can deceive me
Please, lie to me to keep me by your side.
Deceive me if it means I can be with you
Even if your love is a dull re-enactment of what it should be
Let it keep me with you always.
Even if your lies are like the water
Telling me I don’t need air to live, knowing I do
I will stay if you let me.
I will forgive you for lying to me, I promise
Can I forgive me for lying to myself?
I don’t know; the question is too intellectual
For now, I am happily deceived
For now, I will continue living the lie
For now, I will allow myself to be fooled.
Even if you don’t love me, pretend.
