A fraud is something that is not what it pretends.
If the final goal of an interaction is not something genuine but a fraud, then here we call the game of nothingness, where everything is built on lies. And better lies.
Deception is hated, disgusted by most of us. We live in an imperfect world, full of falseness and injustice, yet in the end maybe what we really want is just some simple truth that we deserve. However, since this society contains too many different journeys, of different lives, focusing on only facts and facts from the beginning until the end will never help. Actually, it may lead to a great depression ruining your life. In order to beat deception, we need to make use of it, instead of avoiding it.
We pretend, so as to kill the fraud.
Words coming out should be honest most of the time, but each of them would need a pretending cover, to win against any obstacles. In my life, I have been doing that constantly in order to protect what is genuine and pure in anything I care about.
For example, “sometimes” is sometimes a pretending cover for the word “sometime” of mine.
Sometimes, I pretend to know nothing much before a person, so that I could hear as much as possible about their stories, for the sake of enjoying a conversation between two pour souls. As long as there is a way to treasure the moment between us, I will grab it.
Sometimes, I pretend to smile in order to let the sorrow have the time to travel through all my body and then be released by some strange words following the smile. Then the tears may never come out.
Sometimes, I pretend to be a cruel man, so that the hatred and fear of someone important to me could be turned into me. At that moment, what I wish the most was to let them talk everything out, and finally beat the hardships themselves, even if that means I had to be the one on the opposite side. As long as they can protect what is treasured, I would help them.
And sometimes, I pretend to write, but instead, that is just something which never comes out for real. In the end, I choose to play the game of nothingness myself, with my only weapon as words full of singular honesty.
