Great Pretender - Poem by Cez S.G.

I put on a happy face, laughed with people and friends
I acted as if I didn't care, not minding the hurt that prevails
I looked at my phone, arguing with myself whether to call or to stall
My ego triumphs, leaving me shattered and mournful.

I tried starting all over again with someone who cares
I thought I could nurse my brokenness with his presence
I did what I thought would make me forget
But I couldn't stop musing, I'm all regret.

I'm no better now, nor will I be alive again without you
I just feel sorry that I didn't fight for my right to love you
I will try to live with this pain
And forget you in time, i pray.

I'm a great pretender, nobody knows my disguise
But if I have to go on like this, i will
Setting you free is all that my heart can offer.
I love you still...
