You pretend

You pretend to be who your not

Who you'll never be

Who you never were

Who she saw

Was never real

You never cared

Afraid to feel

She never knew

The sadistic truth

The nature

Of your lies

She pretended she was in love

Sheltered her tears and cries

She pretended to be the one

Afraid to forget

Afraid she'll regret

Scared of who you weren't

And who you never were.
