It isn’t like living a lie, appalling as it
might seem to an outsider – but the
paradox exists in whose untruth it is

A shiny construct of gibbous intent is
as glorious as heaven even if it was
meant to be another’s secret dream

You’ve made room for me in a view
of paradise without paraphernalia of
concrete that is hard to resist –

So I don’t bewail whose truth this is
when we both see the same images
of innate harmony and content
