B is for Deceptive Powers

What deceptive powers lie at the tip of your tongue?
That I
Would want...
Would think
I could sip on it and for just a short time
And change the taste of salt, now trickling into my mouth.

What deceptive powers.
It tells me that (for a short time)
I could know
Truly know
what it is like to inhale you
Truly inhale you.

This nose rubbing on yours
These lips part
This exchange of ideas discussed on dancing red carpets.

It. Is. Deceptive.
This will not last past the lie
But I need you
Right now
I need the tip of your tongue
And maybe… something more.

Deceptive Powers
