I want to pretend

I loved you

Once

Too much,

And now

I just hurt

Too much

For having loved

At all-

Knowing the risk,

And throwing it aside,

Like a fool

Throws caution

To the wind,

Like a child

Embraces a fairy tale

As truth.

So now

The tears are mine

Alone,

Secrets

For my solitary sadness.

You looked

Good

Today,

So I fled

Before

You could see

Me crumble-

My strength

Doesn’t yet exist

With you near.

I want

To pretend

I’m happy

For you,

But it’s just a lie that I can’t keep giving life to anymore-

I’m not happy

For either of us.
