Can we pretend for once it’s not just pretense?

Can you not emphasize that what we have is not the truest of things?

Because what I want and what I need is truth;

To be able to fall down on you and to be picked up by you.

Can we pretend for once it’s not just an act…

That deep down, what we are is right

Even if it feels terribly, excruciatingly unstable,

Like an egg balanced on pin point.

Can we for once pretend that

It is all as real as the rest of this false, evil, good-for-nothing world?

Let the cloak of invisibility fall to the ground,

Let the world burn and may we burn with it,

But just once, let’s not pretend to pretend.
