Pretender

by sschubert

Copyright ©2010 Stephanie R Schubert

Here I am caught pretending

That you and I aren’t

at our ending

Everything I try to hide

All the things trapped inside

The words I can’t make amend

The words that say our end

But still here I pretend

That you and I aren’t at our end

To afraid to speak my mind

Something about you I don’t want to leave behind

And yet there is no future to seek

You and I already hit our peak

And as I stand here over

our inevitable end

Oh yes - It is so near

Your reaction is what I fear

I can’t quite grasp that passing thought

My broken heart your life does haunt

Now that I cannot give

How can I possibly live

Knowing I can’t truly love

Condemned it is

and others I shove

Feeling sad as you fall

It hurts too much to give it all

Knowing I am broken inside

All true feelings pushed aside

Everything around me broken and cold

All my emotions remain untold

Too scared

to break your heart

I can’t watch if you fall apart

Still what is us

isn’t me

Hoping in the end you will see

The truth is all I can tell

Even if I go to hell

A pretender is what I have been

This is where I end up

time and again

Stephanie, the character's seem to have thier own multiple emotions mixed with a spiral of neverending...... or circular decent or rise. Quite open opens the mind to the mixed equations. induce

steph, there is a bit of the pretender in us all, especially when it comes to the elusive world of love. You have captured those deep and desperate feelings beautifully in this very sad piece. I love your work and am so glad you're back my friend.

truly sad write drenched in melancoly.

(in L13 - you forgot the "I" and a space between L12 and 13)

Best wishes

it is never good to pretend you have feelings for someone.. you either see it going farther then where it is at now then it is just time to move on'
regardless of how you think you might hurt the other because you are just holding them back from finding someone who will truly love them
This is a great write I like how you betray the process of what is going on in this person's head
yours truly

When you find yourself pretending to be someone youre not then that is a def sign that its not working. You should never have to pretend....

This is very sad Steph.

Wow excellent I love this one. You like Edgar Allan Poe don't you? This reminds me of his style of writing.

very well done, I found myself wrapped up in this poem and taking it very personally as if my own experience. That is a great thing to give to a reader. Rhyme scheme has always been very hard for me and I never really challenge myself to try it so it's good to see somebody getting out there and not being afraid to give it a try.
thanks for sharing-mumble_bee
