Patches don’t fix holes. They are a cover up; A lie. What once was whole is really whole no longer and will never be again.
Smiles and hugs don’t fix holes. They are actions that are ingrained in us from habit, but when our eyes no longer connect we are merely going through the motions.
We care but we do not love and if we did not both miss what once was we would slowly fade from each other’s lives.
Why do we pretend? Why do we fight for what has been shot to pieces and can not be repaired?
I’m not sure I will ever know…
But I will keep trying to patch up these holes. I will keep on pretending because I just can’t let go of those memories we shared.
