How does one pretend
How do I
Paste a smile on my face
When I don’t feel
Cheerful at all

How does one accept
How do I
Ignore the hurt caused
By inconsiderate attitude
Such emotional abuse

How does one change heart
How do I
Simply forget what you said
What your words did
To me and my heart

How can you think
It’s okay to act how you did
And just like that, just because
I must agree to move on
As though nothing happened

No, no more!
