Pretending For You

gfu
You can only make me
pretend I don’t
love you,
let’s not rupture this
friendship
you tell me
but for me every
conversation that may
have seemed innocent
was a desperate struggle to
withhold all I felt that was
screaming from within.
You can only make me
pretend I don’t
love you,
friends we’ll remain as
you wish,
I allow you to set the terms
of how we interact cos in
my hidden heart
being near you is
what matters most.
You can only make me
pretend I don’t
love you,
and tomorrow I’ll joke
and feign a lighthearted
approach to things while
being dragged down
to the ground by this
heavy heart of mine
that I’m forced to carry
around with me
for as long as
you
remain inside it.
