I admit I lie but let me tell you now, I’ve decided not to anymore but when I’m down and low, can I pretend to be okay? Will you stop asking questions? Will you just sit with me, in the quiet?
The smile on my face might be fake but right now, it’s as real as it can get. Don’t try to make things better; don’t make it worse, can we just be? There’s no need to be strong, don’t be sorry; leave me alone.
I’d make you coffee and listen to you talk, spend time on the terrace tonight, counting stars. Did you know We are stronger than we think and weaker than we believe we are?
Ain’t it great? You’re happy with your delusions and I’m happy with mine.
