I am to not notice your presence

yet do so watchfully, pretending not to see

yet seeing

I am to walk past unacknowledged

yet do so painfully pretending not to hurt

yet hurting

I am to stay away intentionally

yet do so in sorrow, pretending no effect

yet quite affected

I am to not have conversation

yet do so compliantly, pretending not an ending

yet knowing it is ended.
