Where do we go from here?

By Rocky Dickerson


Here I am

This is me


This is me pretending to not notice her

See how it looks as though I’m not desiring to see her every move?


This is her

See how she believes I’m not thinking of her at every moment? 

                        - Neither do I


See these people?

These are the people I’m not fooling either.

These are the people that saw everything weeks before I ever did.


Here we are now

This is us


See how we are pretending as if this is just like any other situation?

We’re not very good pretenders

Maybe we should stop pretending and start our own reality
