A fake smile, a firm handshake;

Everything is prepared.

Your friendly face

Takes me out of my comfort zone

And makes me stay away.

I pour myself inside out

And you just smile.

The autumn of myself

Has dropped the leaves

Below the hopelessness,

And I continue opening up

In front of the unworthy grin of yours.

Over and over again

I repeat the mistakes

That I’d sworn to mark inside my head.

Time to give up;

Give up on fate

And every word you have said.

I will gather them all

In a small box,

And throw everything in the river under the bridge.

Drop the masks,

I know what you are.

No need to pretend

When you stand in front of a stone statue.
