Shhhh…..

Life lived for the assumptions that the facade was real
Don’t tell.
Don’t tell.
No one should know. No one can know.

Shhhh….
But I know. We know.
All lies and we can’t figure out how it fits in with all the words
So many words
Right
Wrong

Don’t tell
Never tell

How can they not see? They did.
Ignored
“Tell this lie”
Not that one. That is a lie and lies are bad

Tell this lie. All is well and good and right
We never lie

Look at all of them
Look at the photo
No one smiles

More. Always more
Not enough for those still here
More. Always more

Don’t tell
Don’t tell

Shhhh
Shhhh

It isn’t real
No one knows, it’s not real
Can’t they see it isn’t real?

It’s real
No, we know the lies
We live the lies

10 years
20 years
30 years

More lies
Don’t remember
Forget

Life lived so others will assume the facade is real
Don’t tell.
Don’t tell.
No one should know. No one can know

It isn’t real
We know
We will always know
