I pretend that I am in love, 

As if I could ever know such a feeling.

Those feelings of joy and happiness

As foriegn to me as a fish is to the desert.

I lie to myself and make up scenarios

Where I pretend I am in love, 

That I ACTUALLY like let alone

love someone else.

Hell, I don’t even think I like myself.

How am i supposed to

Even think of loving someone else?

I am simply lying to myself with such follies.

No one could ever love me,

So how can I expect myself 

To actually love someone?

I will just keep lying to myself.
