Let's Pretend -

Let's pretend that we don't care about our opinions of one another. Let's pretend it's easy to watch the people we love suffer. Let's pretend we can change our feelings like channels on the t.v. Let's pretend our selfishness is pure rationality.

We had each other thinking twice as hard, like we usually did. We abandoned reason to follow our hearts while under loves influence. The promises that we had to break were the ones we couldn't afford to make. The price for forgiveness was high, and we paid it with our trust, and sacrifice. When I look back to remember those days I wouldn't trade them for anything. The world back then seemed so conquerable back when we abandoned our senses.

It feels like it's been forever since I've had good company. I haven't faced this harsh of weather until recently. We all say we'll treat the next few moments appropriately, but we always fail to realize exactly what that means.

Let's pretend we still don't care about our feelings for one another. Let's pretend it's getting easier to watch the people we love suffer. Let's pretend we finally found the remotes to our feelings. Let's pretend. Let's pretend.
