Again Today - Poem by Anup Verma

I pretended again today.
I smiled the same smile, laughed the same laugh...
Like an alien from another planet, I impersonated the human form perfectly.
No suspect, no question, no wondering..

I gave off the vibe of happiness and content..
I asked the right questions and gave the right answers.
No one could see, no one heard
I hid in broad daylight

Only when I was alone, only when I was sure noone would know..
Did I let myself be free, pretending no more, and allowing the tears to flow..

I pretended again today...

    A very honest and soul baring poem. For some inexplicable reason this brings to my mind how nine times out of ten when one is asked, how are you? The response is always I'm good.' Or I'm fine. Which most of the time is not true. We just pretend so as not to bother others with our true feelings at the time. (Report) Reply
