Life Lines

I look at my hands and trace the lines,

Do you remember?

Remember when I made you believe,

That I could read palms?

I did it just to hold your hand,

To touch it,

Look at it,

Caress them,

I researched and learned,

I wanted to believe,

That I could actually do this,

That I wasn’t just being creepy,

I invited you,

When you knew no one was around,

You came,

I wanted nothing more than for you to believe in me,

I wanted nothing more than to hold you close,

As I look at the life lines in my hand,

I feel the tears fill my eyes,

It started with the best intentions,

How could it go so very wrong…
