Pretend - Poem by Maya Hanson

I’m tired of the
back and forth
banter,

the pretending

Trust me, I’m
stepping over the line

Trust me, I’m
pushing the boundaries
brushing your back
with my fingertips
letting the earth
come crashing down

Another afternoon
another night
passes and I
forget my bag
of tricks and logic

stumbling blindly
into a room
where everything is
all too real.

And I want to scream at you
for not stepping
over the line-
just
trust me

But no, never mind
Back and forth
banter

Let’s just
pretend
