Have you ever lied to a lover?
Just to convince yourself
That you would never look at another
Especially one who may look a little like yourself
Have you ever cried about a lover?
Wondering who will be the first to hurt the other one
Even if that could be years away
But in your head it feels like it may happen today
Have you ever denied a lover?
From a kiss
Since you can feel the past upon their lips
Taste the sadness, the guilt, and lost lust under their salty skin
Have you ever stayed up wondering if anyone has ever felt the same?
And secretly hoping no one has
Just so there is a reason for this to be happening
Since you will be the first one to tell this story
….have you ever felt that?
