You Say


You say that you need me
You say that you love me
How will you express it this time
Will you say it with words
Words that please the ear
That quickly dominate the heart and mind
And subdue their endless stream of doubts
Or will you put on a bigger show
And offer me the grand prize
The gift of your time
The warmth of your kiss
The pleasure of your touch
Then when you think you've appeased me
Gave just enough to ease my fears
How soon until you disappear
Dropping promises and smiles as you leave
Like leaves from an autumn tree
That you'll soon return
How soon until I learn
That promises and smiles make
A cold and empty embrace
