Are You Like Me?

Do you cook her dinner
And tie ribbons around her birthday packages?
Like me,
Do you hold her hand
And kiss her mouth when she asks?
Do you wonder what
Different skin,
different days,
Different lips
Might taste like?
Do you smile
And wish it was honest?
Do you beg
Your heart to feel how she does?
Like me,
Do you wish for
A love that
Overwhelms,
Suffocates,
And sets you free?
Do you wear a mask,
Do you play a role
That seems less real
But always more false
Than desire?
Are you like me?  

~to you
