instead of lying about
your hair looks good, or
your outfit, or the dinner you cooked
is great, honey - why not pick specific
aspects to honestly praise? this part, this
one thing or these several
things just need, need
to be mentioned, captured
your gaze and your breath away

and practice to have them swallow it.
Swallow it, while you smile
and say it's good,
it's all good.
Your little white love
is a lie
