The Facade

We are,
No, we were.
We could have been.
But we shall not.

Today, we part ways
And we look to make it painless.
We dig for excuses,
rake the soil
and roil the wine
we open our hearts but we still tone it down
all to make it painless.

We make a hundred excuses
Of why not
Where none was needed.
Where the only excuse
Was the lack of courage
To sit and work on it,
To see through the polythene sliver
At the diamond lying beneath
And to trust in the power to see through the inevitable.
We’d rather accept it as it comes
Cause we are cowards.

We are guilty of the same mistakes
Of putting on facades of charm
And of soft souls underneath
Of hiding behind verbose walls
And not stepping ahead to faith
Of not believing that the chinks in our armour
Were the best parts of us.
For deceiving ourselves
In the name of society.

Today we part ways
And we open hearts to say goodbyes
But we look beyond what could have been,
We look beyond those moments
That should not have been overlooked,
We look at the strong armour
We had put on for ages
And build a new façade,
One of nonchalance and strength.

Where so much could have been,
Now there is only a tough façade
Covering a crumbling soul.

  I really like this, it's so true. It reminds me of one of my own poems "Mea Culpa". Anyway, I've enjoyed this, keep on writing!
