Let Us Pretend




Let us pretend we were once in love.

Our eyes could never see another, we were entrenched in each other.

Let us pretend that it was real.

No one else would shatter this dream

happiness was everything~ It seemed.

Let us pretend it last forever.

You didn't ask to never share with me again.

We only saw happiness till the end.

But, today it ends.

Happiness was not here at all.

Thoughts of others whispered from the walls.

Our hearts were not in this.

So, why should we pretend?

There must be something better than to live this lie?

Even if it is to walk forever alone.

I would rather that~ then believe,

Pretending is ever better

Than what true love can bring!
