some day, if only, yesterday, history, pretend

Some day
if only
yesterday
history
and we are here today
used to be’s
have been already
and now they’re
dead and gone and done

Why not keep thinking about them?
Why not keep reliving the same moments?
Tonight, let’s just pretend.

Let’s pretend…
Let’s pretend there is no connection
never was
a connection
so Intangible
No sharp silk threads
tying
binding
cutting tenderly
tightly
woven
loose on your end
Let’s just pretend.

Let’s pretend…

Let’s pretend I never wrote
that poem
suck that ink
back into my careless
guilty pen
And let’s just pretend.

Let’s pretend…


Let’s pretend you felt something
when you brushed against me
and then those feelings
Transcended
and became
something more
Tonight, let’s just pretend.

Let’s pretend…that I might have meant
something
to you
for a brief moment
Let’s just pretend.

And tomorrow, you can pretend
That we didn’t pretend.

But tonight -
Tonight
Let’s just pretend.
