Sweet Nothings

tangled

In the post coital haze

when you’re fuzzy warm inside

Do you pour sweet nothings

into receptive ears?

What fragrant lies

escape your honeyed lips?

What sugar coated deceptions

slip between the sheets?

And in the morning light

do you cultivate a little distance?

Do you feign casual indifference

amidst stilted words and gestures?

Or do you simply simulate amnesia

with deliberate and practised poise?

    1. Thank you Martin - I imagine this piece to reflect the feelings of many men and women who crave the intimacy of human relations, but fear the commitment.
