laughter and lies

hands held in the sun
back when the heat felt harmless
and nothing burned me

everything shined and
I was immune to doubt and
to reality

when I left I knew it was
the only thing I could do
because in truth
the laughter and lies had never been separate

looking back now, as if in a dream
I see the heat of that shining sun it gleams
and makes it all shimmer
like something precious
