Oscar Worthy

written by: Alyssa Brocker



let's pretend that we're happy.
let's pretend you didn't cheat.
let's pretend you mean it when you say "I love you.”
let's pretend I don't see your red eyes,
and you don't see mine.
let's pretend you never hit me.
i swear, it was just that one time.
let's pretend I'm not that stupid girl
who keeps on coming back.
oh wait,
i'm not acting.
that's me.
