About the Poem
This poem is about a relationship dwindling - with only one party noticing, yet being able to do nothing.
The poem also explores reality by showing the reader you can only help someone so much; the other person must respond in some way for the bond to work. All too often, the relationship fades and you are left with one person heartbroken and the other totally unaware.

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
