Karma-e-leon

I wanted him to take my name off his list. But I only smiled a greeting.

I didn't want to be lost in what he called 'friends'.

So general. So casual.

Like freshers during frosh or Orientation - "we're friends". And you've only p'haps met them 3 times since.

So insignificant.

I wanted him to not call me a friend. It didn't sound like he meant it anymore.

But then what do you say to people who've made it a habit to speak what they don't mean and flatter what is false and take pride in their charade?

I suppose it might be their one talent and I don't want to take that away from them. I just want them to keep it with them and not share it with me.

So here. A fake smile that I won't pass off as real.

So you know, I know. You're a liar.

Now take my name off that offensive list.
