The Pedestal

Spinning.
Around. Upside down. Together.
Once. Twice. Forever.

Sparkling.
Reflecting beads of sunlight.
Mirroring more than that.
Imitating the rotating beam
Spotlighted on one
Until someone shoves.

Friends. More than that.
But always less than everything.
More than an attachment
Tittering on obsession.

A love for words.
Strung together.
Fake.
Keys hit.
Written lies.
Click clack click.

Passion for more than him.
Love for only her.
They forever.

Her playing with his smile.
Him blinded by vertigo.
Both alone.
Blameless for him.
Guilt on her.

Head down,
She speaks.
He listens.
She—me—lies.
