I knew I wasn’t asleep.
We stood eye to eye and she wanted me to stop with the lies.
I tell her I am not what I seem.
She says one lie.
Of course, I cannot tell that I am exactly what I am.
What if her name is Delilah, the treacherous one?
She tells me to lie down a bit, calm the warmth on my skin.
I could not deny a goddess the taste of dining with a warrior like so.
I lay down and calm my burning skin, a drop of water or two.
How I ended up here, eye to eye with this one here.
Behind a temple created on false illusions, right here.
With the truth about my desire to escape sweet solitude.
Right here eye to eye with this one here, a goddess right here.
I need you to understand me, what I am saying is this.
I wasn’t asleep.
