2003 Jennifer Lyon

Close your eyes
And think of someone
You desire
But don't open them
Or you'll be faced
With something you despise
This is not a love song
This is a warning
From me onto you
Don't try and find
The thumping of a pulse
Or search for anything
Within the empty space
Between my ears
Just close your eyes
When you kiss me tenderly
And smile at the image in your head
And not at the automaton
In front of you.
