let’s pretend

Let’s pretend for a moment that I’m still open and free

There’s no pain, no sadness, no anger

Everything is easy

Everything makes sense

.

Let’s pretend I still go to sleep every night with a smile on my face

There are no tears, no aches, no doubts

My eyes close with ease

My heart beats at a steady rhythm

.

Let’s pretend I still think reality is better than any dream I could have during the night

There are no questions, no anxiety, no fear

Sleep doesn’t matter much anymore

I’d rather be awake anyway

.

Let’s pretend it didn’t hurt

It didn’t absolutely blindside me

It didn’t knock all the air out of me

I can still breathe

I can still think

.

Let’s pretend I can talk about it

My ten notes can go somewhere

I can process it, deal with it, release it

I can get it off my chest

I won’t feel it trapped inside anymore

.

Let’s pretend for 5 more minutes

I’ll just look at you from afar

I won’t touch you, hold you, kiss you

I’ll just look and I’ll just pretend

For five minutes I’ll be alright again
