Fake Warmth

We left the heater on

So I dreamt of you two

Acting together as one

Acting how you should

Acting like in love

Happiness surged through me

And I thought about the beauty

I thought it all was real

Until I awoke

And heard the sounds

Of the heater in the room

Of the rain directly outside

Of my breath in the warm air

And I knew

The heater showed me a lie

The warmth is too artificial

Though it all seemed so real

It was fake

You’re really just as cold

As the rain outside

You’re as fake

As the heater in the room

That warmed my senses

And filled me with lies.

The End
