Let’s pretend that nothing happened,
That the world is right,
That these marks arnt from that belt in your hands,
That tears arnt more common than rain.
Let’s pretend I’m okay,
The this blood isn’t mine,
That this blade is for cutting clothes,
That these bruises and burns dont need to heal,
Because they were never made.
Let’s pretend that you never hurt me,
That I can still sleep at night.
That there are no nightmares,
No bloody visions,
That my screams are ones of delight.
Let’s pretend we can go back,
Before my art made me cry,
Before I wished I could die,
Before the wars at home,
That never seem to end.
Before the memories,
Of seeing a dying friend.
Let’s play pretend,
And believe the worlds just fine.
Let’s all be delusional,
And say we feel alright.
Let’s make believe we can fix anything,
That the broken can mend the whole.
