A lesson in being real

Forgive me
If sometimes, I feel unreal
Like everything I say
Has been rehearsed
Like it's all an act
A mockery
Of everything they call love

Because sometimes
When you have spent
your entire life
Faking love in every way
Faking kindness, and sincerity
Sometimes a shadow of that past
Overtakes you

But I swear
This, in the present
Is everything love was supposed to be
And I am trying very hard
To not ruin this
By feigning affection
