If Only You Could See Me Now

If You Could See Me Now, Darling,
You would see me
sober yet only mildly alert.
My cigarettes merely guard
the gates of insanity
and I drink tea (not coffee)
to temper the anxiety.

Not a day or a kiss or a lifetime goes by
without me staving off your ethereal
temptation with all the might I hardly muster
sober.

Sometimes I sleep all day only to dream
of you.
Sometimes I stay awake
only to avoid those dreams.

If Only You Could See Me Now, Darling
If Only You Could See Me Now.
