    The Lie
    by Wikket

    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
