you were still lying
stark naked
in broad daylight
when vision was curtailed by bright blinders
i drew nearer
and coated you with luminous lies
this time you didn't try to stop me
you simply kept silent 
i found myself confident enough
to caress your truthful beauty 
suddenly the day darkened 
and it started to snow

neither of us ran for shelter from the cold 
i saw wings flapping on my shoulders
