The Lie

i dont know who wrote this one but its good

Woke up this morning
Trying hard to hide my melancholy
I joined you for breakfast
And we continued our lie

Every day it is similar
You are cheery
And so am I
Our terrible lie

Can you imagine a time
When we awoke and did not speak
Realizing our moods would cause tension
Tension caused by too little life?

I do wish sometimes
As I leave for work sullenly
Dreading the day already
Weeping far within

The lie, terrible and unending
Would cease to be
And I would know the real you
And you the real me

But, the lie drags on for now
For it is not written in the stars
And perhaps it will never be
I am my own companion

The dreaded truth
Gathered in a lifetime
Sentenced for an eternity
Realized too late

Sometimes we grow up and grow apart. We go in different directions and a gap grows that cannot be bridged. But our hearts stand at that bridge, and they cry and yearn for what is no more. But even the pain in our hearts can't cross that bridge and we struggle with what we should do.

Sometimes, life gets in the way and we simply go through the motions, only one day to realize that along the way, we lost track of one another.

Break the silence some morning. Take her by the hand, look her in the eye and say, "I miss you"

This is so beautiful, so expressive and so terribly sad. But maybe the truth you dread will be your salvation:

you are making me into a cry baby now though, my lovely wolf. I wish I / we could heal you.

This is far too common for far too many of us:(
