It hurts

We lie to each other like it’s the greatest truth we’ve been dying to tell
So loud we laugh it off like the joke it’s meant to be
But it isn’t
It hurts so bad
That I can’t trust a word you say
And you never believe me when I say
I love you.
It hurts so much
a little bit of hell I taste each time
you downplay my love
and my emotions patronised
But we laugh
as if wanting the words to go away
It never goes away
it hurts like hell
cause I can’t stop
nor can I make you
love me too
