true desires

i am not looking for a woman
to die for, but one that i would like
to live for. i could take her to the lake,
pretending we were just paying a family visit,
and then caress the surface of the water
as if it were the skin of her arm
lying next to mine. but the truth is,
i am not looking for a woman
beyond the caress of a verse.
