how can we be honest when the truth destroys what’s possible? (freeverse)

don't give yourself away
even though both of you are thinking it

best to play the game 
"it's part of the fun" 

can't be too upfront 
no,
you can't be honest,

have to perform. 
the word-play creates the fantasy, 
a world of possibilities

best to keep it in the dark
and let it grow in that corner
until it becomes so large,
you can't escape

you can't let it out
not yet,
let it grow
or else the fantasy dies
and with it,
your chance
