Stop Pretending

Stop Pretending short poem

Photo by Alex Bellink

You don’t have to pretend, the feelings you keep.
You don’t have to admit, what’s bothering you deep.
You said you don’t care, but your eyes lie.
You said you can’t tell, but your lips utter and sigh.
You won’t say the word, your gestures says it does.
You don’t have to hide, I know love goes.

Stop pretending when you can’t keep your feelings.
Stop admitting when you know how it feels.
Stop saying you don’t care when you know your heart, what your heart is saying.
Stop stuttering in front of me when you can say the three words.
Stop hiding it from me, I know you love me too!
