I Pretend

by eloisedesousa

I pretend.
Pretending that I’m human again
Pretending that you’re still my friend
That you haven’t set me free.

I’ve been crying.
No tears to see, so don’t you try
Accusing me because it’s a lie
That I let our love die.

I’ve been gone.
Forgotten like a lonely song
Delusions of meaning more than one
Sultry moment in your wings.

I’m afraid.
The cold winds of time have blown again
Reminding me how low this life can end
Without you next to me.

So I pretend.
Pretend that I never loved you dear
That my heart is not crystal clear
Whilst you pretend you can’t see me.
