Lie to me if you must

Embrace me through the night
And let me feel you sigh
I want to feel your heartbeat close to mine
as it sky-rocketed through the sky

Hold me tight
Keep me warm
Even just through this night
I don’t care if this won’t last
as forever never do really last

Lie to me if you must
But don’t tell me this isn’t real
for tomorrow may be gone
and this moment is enough.

Lie to me if you must
but make me believe
even just this once
that your heart beats only for me
and this is nothing else but real.

In response to #FWF Free Write Friday: Ponder This. My second take on this prompt! I guess, I just couldn’t let go of this one in my head.

    When we would rather believe the lie because the truth may hurt too much.

      Sadly, that’s true. Sometimes ignorance of truth is bliss. 😀

    sometimes we need the lie more than the truth. I enjoyed reading this even though it was sad, thanks for sharing!

    Oh I know my heart has pleaded for a lie when I knew the truth was not what I wanted to hear. Beautiful poem. Thank you.

    This brings me back to a moment in my life just like your poem. Images popped up that I had not thought about in 31 years!

            Good .. ” Let this warm be stay with us,
            The night let it forget to wake up,
            The moon let stand in the mid sky,
            Feeling warm and warmer?

            I hold you till you feel you are safe,
            The warm of of your palms,
            Let is sustain until it gets blushed,
            The only night today,
            …….
            ……
            ……
            .Ok, I gotta go, moon is about to go,
            I am star on the sky,
            A warm star on the sky,
            ………
            …….
            ….”
