Have you ever…


Thought someone cared,
And then they didn’t?
Thought you cared,
And you didn’t?


Would you ever…


Trust someone,
If you knew they didn’t care?
Be entrusted,
When you know you don’t care?


Why do we…


Lead each other on?
Break each other’s hearts?
Crush each other’s hopes?
Leave each other broken in the dust?


Why do we pretend
To care at all.

It's Easier

to pretend, no energy required if insincere, no follow-up mandated, no need to continue smiling. It is in this way that humans learn not to care about a lot of important things that should be cared about. Such is the nature of conditioning. So, smile until you feel it. It's easier. - Lady A -
