Only a Moment

Only a moment

And I'll awaken from my nightmares

Too rarely, I remember

That I'd die before I'd let you do this

And I fight, less and less


Despite the foreplay of love I'll never feel

I try to scream for help

Instead, I only whisper

"Why me?"


And my shift is over

A twenty-hour break

Before my next shift begins

And I will have to love you
