…and pretend to believe
and you will be silent more and more
and they will be happy with you
and also pretend…
and secretly check your soul-
shut her screaming mouth
and say – I know it hurts
imagine that it doesn’t hurt anymore

which means it’s still tolerable.
so it’s still possible
try to go around
not knowing what will happen next
look at each other past
spitting lies at each other
and at night, hugging each other
keep warm…

… secretly, so that no one hears
secretly so that no one notices
secretly so that no one would believe
secretly, so that he himself did not know …
