He just thinks I’m his friend

But I don’t

He doesn’t know that

I tell him about the little baby girl crying

He says I scared that girl and smiles

That smile, I call it bewitching

I swallow my words

My lips smile, my eyes can’t

He doesn’t notice

So I stay safe and relieved, hoping

Someday the pieces will fall into place

I wait for that tomorrow when the broken pieces don’t hurt

Till that today when I tell him what he was to me

For, that moment has come

Everything seems tumbled and chaotic

A beginning started from the end

I settle down to the bottomless ocean

Where I hope his “friendship” sways me
