I Was Only Pretending

a poem by Skye Kerri- Leigh Bagshaw, UK

I was only pretending
When you saw me smiling,
I did not want you to see
What was troubling me
Because it was a world of secrets and lies

I was only pretending
When I said I didn't care,
I did not want you to see
That you left me stranded in a place I call "nowhere,"
Because I had been acting
For so long that you didn't know the real me

I was only pretending
About everything

I knew I would fool you
Because there was nothing you could do

I may not pretend until the end
If I could feel the love of a friend
