off my tongue

as the pill slipped off my tongue
and onto yours
the moment we were sharing
was more than intimate,
that moment held a lifetime 
of  misplaced anticipation
that was not to be sated here

delusion held the gate open
wide enough for our desires
to come charging through 
only to find that our dueling 
visions were false expectations

as the pill slipped off my tongue
and onto yours
the realization rolled over us,
we were never going to feel
that again, not even with
the help of some little pills
