I want to pretend
after I said that I didn't.
my limbs ache
and my head hurts, I want to cry
but I can't manage the emotion.
I'm falling apart from the inside out
just like before, except this time
it's real.
I catch in my throat and I remember
all that we said.

I want to pretend that you're thinking of me
always
even when we're miles apart
and things are in no way ever gonna be the same again
I want to think that you need me
and want me to come back for you
I like to hope that you want to see me
and you'd be happy
like the time when I knew that you were.

I want to pretend that we could be together
but this time I want to pretend honestly
if I wasn't me
and you were not you
I think you'd be okay with holding me
like your lover.
we could be dangerous and break all the rules
just to show them all.
that we're real.

I wish I could pretend.
