tell me otherwise…

on some days

when the moon is hiding

behind a cloud

I see you through its eyes

and I feel your gaze upon me

on those nights

I find your smell

lingering in the corners of my bed

when I climb in

they hug me until I fall asleep

you may deny

it wasn’t love

you may fake

it’s existence

but know this

those stares that have stayed

with me under my skin

that melted many a chilly nights

tell me otherwise

those words that have filled

the voids in my belief

that sucked away the million tears

tell me otherwise
