This poem is both desperate and rushed, moreso than the last, because it may be spoken by someone on their death bed.

Lie to me, my sweet,
lie and make me believe
so that I might accept these
delusions of grandeur
and no longer envy
those of sane mind and conscious.

Lie to me, my love,
and promise that you'll stay here
by my side,

until the last shade of white
leave my skin,
and my thoughts lose their sense.

Lie to me, oh dear,
the dark is coming fast.
It has arrived now,
to cut the tendons,
the ties,
that bind me to this world
and you.

So lie to me, my sweet,
to keep me unaware.
Tell me of great cities,
brilliant men,
and delicate pretties.
Do this deed for me,
so I can rest with peace
and comfort,
sure that my life has been
so fulfilled with wonder.
