Pretend

Pretend
for a second
That you love me
And I love you.
Simple
Pretend I trust you
And you, me
Pretend then that you believe
That I won’t change
You
Lets pretend I let you in
You turn the key
Pretend I jump into the abyss
Pretend you took my hand
And jumped
Now pretend
For a second
That we weren’t pretending
We won’t say a word
And love in a kiss

Stop

If I was a car
Then I could stop
for real.
The brakes take too-
Emergency brake.
But there is still
The Radios circulatory system of thoughts.
Oxygen fighting hopelessly for me against CO2.
Granted: Oxygen.
Expel its enemy,
Give it purpose
to give me purpose
Using it or using me?
The engine diaphragms-waiting
GO GO GO it rumbles
Sit still
yet still refuses to be stop
If I was a car
I wouldn’t bother braking.
Be more rash than emergency braking!
Whether I was at 100 or 5
I would turn the key
So I could stop
I wouldn’t matter if I was moving
since being still isn’t stopping.
Stop thinking
Stop breathing
Stop being
If I was a car I could stop
long enough to rest
vamp myself according to my tune this time
