Mind Tricks

mind tricks

I’ve successfully convinced my mind
That you are him
To recreate the love and lust and longing
The drama.
The passion of the past

My need for volatility
Too strong to bear
I submerged myself in a fake reality.

Or is it, if I believe it to be truth?

I’m a thief, a trick, a liar.
Talented enough to deceive myself
For my own happiness.

I’ve successfully convinced you
That I’m in love
But it’s him, not you.
I play pretend.
