Pretending

Pretending

A Poem by al25

I would do anything

Just to make it through

I keep waiting

But I promise

This is the last time

 

You wont hear from me again

You wont see me again

You wont feel me again

 

I wont ask for your help no more

I kept praying

I kept trying

I kept hoping

I kept waiting

 

My heart its breaking

Its been ripped out of my chest

Its been cut into a million shreds

Feels like Im swiming against the tide

In a never ending ocean

In the dark lonely night

With the stars and the moon looking down at me

But they cant shine no more

 

I turned to you

But you didnt hear me

I kept asking

But you just wont help me

Im on my knees

But all I get is silence

 

Im pretending

That Im over this

But I know I need you

Now more than ever

Your my drug

And im addicted to you

 

I will keep pretending

I will keep fooling myself

Because inside Im dying

And I cant be without you

 

Im pretending

And really thats all I can do

We wait and we pretend we don't care, but we do. What we have to decide is do we care or only want what we can't have? Excellent write

Great poem. I like your use of repetition. Like when you write "I kept praying, I kept trying..." And it's a poem that a lot of people can relate to. In other words, I love it!
