When you are around, my heart is in flutters, yet I pretend I haven’t noticed you.
When you are afar, I pretend I don’t miss you.
When you talk to someone else, I wish it was me you were talking to.
When you shower attention to them, I wish I was the one basking in the warmth.
When you talk about them, I pretend you are talking about me.
When you sing, I want your song to be about me.
When you smile, I want to be the reason.
When you write, I want to be your words.
When you love, I want me to be in your heart.
I don’t want to pretend anymore.
I don’t want to hope anymore.
I don’t want to wish anymore.
I want you to look in my eyes & see it brimmed with love for you.
I want to unveil the mask & be yours forever.
