Lying Between the Sheets
by Lainie Belcastro
Between the sheets they lie,
Exposing more than their naked bodies.
“I want you,” she whispers.
“I want you too,” he whispers back.
Their eyes close to finish their intimate act.
In her mind she calls a different name.
In his mind he does the same.
“Goodnight,” he says.
“Goodnight,” she sighs.
They turn their backs,
Then pull up the sheets that cover their lies.
