I Faked It

Last night I couldn't go to sleep because this poem kept running through my head after I was letting horrid thoughts of my past go through my head. I was the stupidest dater ever. Anyway, this is what I scribbled down last night before going to sleep.

I Faked It

I didn't know what love was
So I faked it

I would kiss you for so long
and say it was because I loved you
But it wasn't because I loved you
It was because it felt good

I didn't know what love was
So I faked it

I would go to bed every night
Hugging that stuffed dog
Saying that I loved you
Not because I loved you
But because I wanted to love someone

I wish I'd known I didn't know what love was
And that I faked it

  2. Interesting.. in getting it out of your head, maybe it's out for good?

  3. Thanks Sally and Sabrina, yes, I believe this happens more often than people usually recognize.

    And CDB I hope you're right. :) I'm just glad that I don't have to fake it anymore. :)

  4. We've all had those moments. I'm glad that you got it down on paper. It's like you purged it out of you. It had to be written! Great poem:)
