The Great Pretender

Silly me

I thought I had to

force my way in.

That I had to

break that door down,

not knowing,

that its always open,

and its not a verb,

but a noun.

I remember

seeing that door,

in shadowy contour.

Just slightly ajar,

and many times before,

I’d get close, but no cigar.

Unaware, that;

waiting in the dream,

for the dreamer to accept,

his role in this grand scheme,

right there

waiting so patiently,

where certainty is kept.


from here to the other side,

we can try to hide,

but through love is surrender,

and no matter how well alibied,

it will unmask the great pretender.
