The Temporary

Tell me you love me,
that you’re somehow able,
I’ll believe your fable,
I’ll feast at that table

I’ll give you all you need,
take whatever you can,
whatever fills your greed,
your hunger I will feed

And when I hit the wall,
after I start to believe,
when you’ve left me to fall,
after I've given my all

There’s nothing left to take,
no reason for the fake,
you can leave like the rest,
a clean and free break

I will fade away,
a random thought astray,
just a faint memory,
remnants of yesterday

For I am temporary,
an unspoken plea,
I will live forever,
in your past’s obscurity
