A/N: Poem inspired by my favorite pair - Lancelot and Guinevere

----

Lies

They were both lying to themselves and they knew it.

At first she would leave straightway, in silence.
The instant limbs were untangled,
clothing was put back on,
and the door slammed shut.

Then she began to linger, not too long, but just long enough.

Long enough to pretend he wasn't memorizing each note of her breathing.
Long enough to pretend he wasn't studying every moonray that caressed her face.
Long enough to pretend he wasn't wanting her in his arms until the sun rose.

She would stare into the darkness, looking for answers that weren't there.

"I can't do this anymore."

Silence.
The bed seemed lighter, the room colder; she had taken all the warmth with her.
All that was left was the smell of sweat and sex.
Sex.
That's all it was anyhow. All either of them wanted.
A lie.

He didn't care. She was just a woman. Nothing more.
He could easily find another to fill his bed.
More lies.

When she came back, he wasn't surprised. He knew she would.

"I thought you couldn't do this anymore?"

"I can't."

Just once more and then never again.
Another lie.

She lingered too long this time.

Long enough to pretend she couldn't remember the rhythm of his heart beating.
Long enough to pretend she couldn't see his dark eyes whenever she closed hers.
Long enough to pretend she couldn't read the answers she sought, traced in every scar written on his skin.

It was pure lust that drew them together.
Hunger, desire, passion.
Nothing more.

Just sex.

Not love.
The worst lie of all.
