Pretender

Written by Jacob Ibrag

You’re a pretender, pretending to know what I’m

thinking. You’re a pretender, pretending to know where

I’ve disappeared. And here I stand, waiting for you to realize

that I never left. I’m exactly where you forgot to exist. Come

back to what is, come back before we become figments.
