Deniability - By Daniel L. Tracy

And I think about her more often than
I should considering I claim I have
no interest
We whisper each other's names at night
When we're in bed with other people
Who don't know us
Who throw us to the wolves
Every chance they get
We both want love
But we find it overpriced

We both want love
But only as a place to hide
from our own insecurities

Cause and effect
direct me to object to your behavior
erasure of the mind and body
subjected to the lies in her eyes
when I see the lines that say
goodbye written in her mind

I think about her mostly at night
when it's just me, my memories
and a Diet Coke.
I've got something stuck in the spokes
of my heart that keep it from finding
something new
lackluster love is just a phase
I'm going through

So I hide behind deniability
Which increases the plausibility
That I am guilty and filthy with lies
of my own device because I cannot
escape the prison of my vice

Cheating, screaming scheming of ways
to find lackluster love between
two sheets

Cause and effect direct me to protect
my interests in the face of their
investment in emotions in recession
and my pretention knows no bounds
