I have an idea. Why not today,
Even now, this very moment,
However late the hour,
We could act as if
Neither one of us once allowed
The words “I love you” to form upon our lips.
Come on! What's with you?
Given our situation, it's worth a try.
Let's pretend we know not each other,
That within us desire plays no role.
Make believe that soul meeting soul
Is silly stuff, a bit of romantic nonsense.
Might we suppose that memories are absent,
And the tumult of heartache, not a factor at all!
Maybe then, at sunrise tomorrow,
We awake and find that nothing remains between us,
No more happiness or sorrow,
No hint of regret or regard.
Love, what love, love had never been ours.

Poet's Notes about The Poem
We'll act as if
You never said 'I love you.'
Pretend like we never wanted
We just don't care
We really won't
