Pretense

A professed intention
a show of indifference
pretending
telling stories
convincing myself
fooling myself

unable to change
the way that I feel
to make the need
less than it is
less important
less a piece of my soul

I drop the mask
throw away the excuses
the reasons why not
the dangers entailed
and clearly see
that I love you.
