Pretender

For just one night hold me –
you can pretend someone else
is cuddled within your arms
soothed by your touch
but don’t tell me
these bittersweet moments
are an illusion.

For a brief few moments
wrap your arms about me closely,
let my head nestle
into your shoulder,
soft and warm . . .
and let me imagine
for just a little while
someone loves me,
and let vague illusions
I could love too
pass through my mind.
