labyrinth
Faithless Lover

I listened to your voice
as you slowly seduced her
over the phone

were those the same words
you spoke so softly
to me just yesterday?

did I dream another
into your being
imagining in my heat

another man who loved
me once with truer heart
so long ago

what can I say to you? 
I do not know why I love
and why you cling to me
while wanting others so

Perhaps you are a final wish 
on the edge of my ascent 
into a soft, snow filled sky
