Elijah Persad-Paisley MD’24

inside my mind
i feel Them* getting next to me
but love is blind,
and, unlike the other times,
this is not a fantasy.

on darkened sheets,
i weep
until the sunset, sunrise,
yet another time.

just like the other times,
it is a fantasy of mine.

* = a gender-neutral pronoun
