Do not pretend that you love me,
and do not tell me that I am yours
for the lust is long gone,
and the trust already took off.
Let’s not pretend there is nothing wrong;
the distance has been growing strong,
the avoidance has been the food to our souls,
and your silence is the truth to this force.
There is nothing more,
there is nothing to long for.
Vanished is now that feeling of wanting never to be apart.
Please do not pretend that you care,
these are no longer your feelings to bare
these are the wounds of the one, that alone,
will face a reality of this ‘forever’
that has come to an end.
No. Do not pretend that you love me
and don’t tell me that I am still yours
for the love is hurt,
and my soul is gone.
