ambrosial fabrications are
easier to swallow down when
incandescence is a blessing bestowed
only upon those with silky tongues.

deceptions are beautiful
in the right words

because they are salvation, like a
rapture, they save the sickly,
self-indulgent souls from those
tragedies they used to write on the insides
of childhood notebooks about who
they could never be [themselves]

they rescue them from tremulous
corners and closets, hideaways
where they've grown too akin to
the demons they nurse; and drag
them into a land beautiful enough
to wear light as a second skin

(where lies are never discussed
but always shared)

clandestine deceits
are so much more comforting
than the absoluteness of reality

because self-resentment is as
natural as a heartbeat to those
who were born breathing and
abhorring and denying all from one
steady gasp of what the existent world
had to offer to them

back then their eyes opened, and
their fingers fumbled, born, they realized
the world wasn't as pretty as promised.
they shut their hands and split their
tongues, born again, to make up a place
where this all didn't exist, because
that is every poet's greatest wish

please, in prettier words,
in prayers on stars, in midnight
mumblings, and crossed hearts
forgotten (crossed fingers hidden)
please

let it be true
