Smile, laugh and keep on walking. Act normal and pretend to listen even to care. Copy their patterns repeat their lies.
“Of course we’re all friends here.”
“Of course I don’t mind.”
It’s so easy to fool those who do not care anyway. So easy to hide behind a mask and keep on smiling. They never notice.
I’m through explaining and through getting angry. It doesn’t matter to you anyway.
“We are your friends.”
“Tell us your problems.”
Oh yeah of course so you can go right ahead and stab me in the back again! Like you do every day. Again and all over again.
Hush now don’t worry. It doesn’t matter. Smile back and pretend.
