Principal Parts

We lie in bed, and I lie to you.
You say you love the clarity with which I speak,
my silent kiss whispers to your ear.

We lay last night, and I lied to you.
You said my words warmed your breath
and ran naked as night through your hair.

We have lain together often, and every night
I have lied.
And you've told me my words streamed
over your breast like silver water in the spring.

My dear, listen closely.
I shall lie and lie again. And you will say,
I love you.
