Look Away

by TinyDancer46

Look away
Act as if it isn't killing you
Ignore the words
That are tearing out your soul...
Show that fake smile
And act as though tears aren't
Forming behind your eyes...
Let the truth haunt your mind
As a lie escapes your lips
Pretend for a moment
That all is okay
That nothing is wrong
And then maybe, just maybe...
If you pretend long enough...
You'll actually believe it
