Some days it’s easy to fake a smile

To have senseless conversations

While thinking of something else.

It comes so easy, and it seems so normal,

That you wonder when it was 

That you never felt the need to pretend.


Some days, the answer suddenly strikes you

And then, when you smile, something hurts

Your eyes suddenly fill with tears, words hurt

And all you want to do, is run away from this,

To that place, to that time, to that person 

With whom you never had to pretend.


But there is no going back anymore

Because all that remains in that place

Are broken dreams which once seemed real

So I stay here, talking, smiling, pretending

Hoping that one day, I will no longer be able

To know that I’m just pretending.
