Very very good write, pretending is so often easier then just being open when both knows the truth. Sometimes feelings just die. Who knows why. Maybe it’s no ones fault maybe it’s life, maybe one quit trying. When we know the truth for certain there is no denying it. I love the poem.
Haha. Thanks Natasha :-)
It reflects that awful time at the end of a relationship when you both know it's over but neither one has been brave enough to call it a day, so you skirt around each other pretending to be fine. More or less. I took the plunge and called it but it's hard.
Thanks for your comments :-) x
Beautiful piece about the thought process of the one being asked and the one asking..
"I'm fine" saves a lot of trouble, which is what the one asking is most likely after - a quick way out.
Too bad this question and answer can't be taken seriously
