Pretend

Don't look at me like that

Don't tell me I'm ignoring you

Can't you see I'm concentrating?

I'm trying to pretend

Pretend that everytime you touch me

My heart doesn't leap five feet off the ground

My body doesn't quiver

That I don't want to yell, to scream for joy

Pretend that the sound of your voice

Doesn't haunt me, always

I hear it in my head

My second conscience

Pretened that when you're gone

I don't feel an empty hole

That clouds don't come and cover the sun

And I'm suddenly alone

Pretend I'm not pretending

But I am, because, as it turns out

If only you knew the extent of it all

You might flee, like a young deer

Pretend

The End
