Let’s pretend there’s a realm
Where no such thing called truth exists
Nor is any entity named lies.
And what we hear in murmers
Or loud chatter,
All is real…just real.
What’s said is what’s meant.
Nuances or subtleties don’t plague
Conversations of lovers.
Hearts do breathe in spoken words
And words reflect intentions…
…..then become actions.
Let’s pretend we’re in this realm.
Let’s pretend your words_
Adjectives of affection_
Are your reality & intent.
They are as pure as they appear.
Let’s pretend this for once…
before separating the lies from truth;
Before knowing my hands are empty.
Before saying the obvious Goodbye.
