Pretend

Pretend

Sometimes I find I want to say
I’m so alone inside my head
But people go about their day
So I’ll pretend that I am dead
But every now and just again
When my brain won’t cooperate
I would like a silent friend
To sit with me through my hate
Listen to the things I cannot say
Without advice or sympathy
And if I reach my hand their way
Take it with soft empathy
Bravely sit inside my dark
As I try to find my light
Though it’s only one more mark
That I’ll make it through this night
And when the new day does begin
Gone the dark of night before
Pretend that nothing happened friend
So I won’t pretend alone anymore
