Can we be honest?

Can we be honest?

Aren’t you tired of playing pretend?

Don’t you get tired of coming up with excuses?

I’m tired of forgiving and acting like I don’t care 

I’m not even angry or lying when I say you can just get up and leave and I’ll be just fine 


Disappointment and resentment wraps me like a blanket at night 

You have slowly morphed from the one I loved to this stranger I don’t recognise 

I’ve always been honest and upfront 

And now I realised you’ve always been a diplomat 

Saying the right things and soothing my fears 

And maybe doing the same thing with yours 

So please be honest for once to yourself and me 

And realise there is no point to this.
