Let's just pretend.

let's just pretend it never happened 
that it just was
past tense and a fleeting history

let's pretend I never cried
that I never tore at the scars
or wished on dying stars
that I dreamt instead of hope,
of the sun and sea
not the thunder and dark clouds
I saw in your eyes 
when I spoke too loudly, too thoughtlessly
that I never had to dance in the rain that came and wet my cheeks
dripping over the stinging grazes on my knuckles and chin

Let's just pretend that we met, talked and laughed
that the rest was a bad dream
from too much pizza eaten as friends.

Let's just pretend.

  1. Hi C, this is very moving. It reminds me of a song called "There is no if" by The Cure. You are a gifted poet.


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment. I try to reply to as many as I can either here or by email. <3 LJx
