Pretense

I put away the words of love
you do not need them anymore
and now I will pretend to be
Exactly as I was before

Pretending,  I will laugh and smile
Come nightfall  tucked back inside my shell
Silently harboring myself away
To carry on the act another day

I will present you with a gift,
and give your lies back to you
Eternally I'll profess to myself
that it's your turn
to be forever convinced
my love is true.

Ouuuch!  What a harsh and painfully real work.  Makes me want to shrink away from from and simultaneously run to an embrace consolingly.   Well eloquoted my friend!  You have truly achieved what every poet aspires to, conveyed your deepest emotions in a way that elicits true empathy, or as my friend Maggie wrote, "painted beauty to your pain."
