the lies i tell myself

i tattoo
your visage
upon my cornea
so beauty infuses my day
your name
upon my tongue
so every word i speak is love

even then
i am aware
of the falsehood
inherent in dream
the falsehood
that makes up
my daily routine

i love you
don’t take it upon yourself
to tell me
how it will never be
i am
a self aware creature
i know
