I want to lie-

by Jason Alan

I want to lie-
to you
to get you naked in my bed
I want to lie-
on top of you
penetrate your core
I want to lie-
on my back
pick you up
rub your skin all over mine
I want to lie-
to say I’m someone
or something I’m not
so somebody will love me
if only for a night
I want to lie-
but I cannot
so I lie-
by myself
night after night.
