make believe

it’s all just make believe

love has never been real

 

it’s an optical illusion

I will see what isn’t there

 

I breath deep the scent of you

you leave and it lingers still

 

it’s a laugh track

you say what I want to hear

 

I taste your sweet lips

but I swallow a bitter pill

 

and, like with any drug

I cannot trust what I feel

 

because it’s just make believe

love is not real
