sometimes i wish you’d lie.

proudly
i acknowledge what i’ve learned
from you:
never ask a question
you don’t want answered
and yet i hear my voice
so small in the dark
“wouldn’t you miss me if i left?”

your answer doesn’t matter
it’s the silence that speaks
and i don’t have to see your eyes
to know the truth.
i’ve known the truth since the beginning.

sometimes i wish you’d lie.
