Pretend not to notice
Pretend you don’t see
Protect at all cost
Your illusions of me

Don’t read what I write
On the lines of my page
You’ll only find flaws
That you’ve long wished away

Just keep smiling at me
I’ll keep smiling at you
You be who you are and
I’ll do what I do

I’ll try not to let
All the things in my mind
Stray far from my pages
Or too out of line

But I can’t promise much
For my pen won’t allow
The truth to be hidden
So I don’t know how

I can be who I am
Yet the one who you see
So protect at all cost
Your illusions of me

And don’t read what I write
It’s far easier then
To see me through my smile
Instead of my pen
