I pretend to be you,
you pretend to be me,
and nothing is ever
quite as it should be.

Baby’s the mom,
and sissy’s the dad
and when you’re happy
you’re really sad.

Charade’s the game.
We play it all the time.
Escaping reality,
transcending our mind.

I’m a cat
and you’re a dog
And that boy there,
he was a frog.

Fairytales come true,
the good guy gets the gal.
And when we’re done playing
you’ll still be my pal.

So tomorrow you’re the mom
and I’ll be the babe.
We’ll make cookies,
the best ever made.

The day will quickly go by
as we live out our dreams.
Charade’s is the best game ever played,
or so it seems!

Your poem reveals the futility of pretense.
Joy Faire Stewart08/22/08
I enjoyed the poem and the last stanza brings it all together. Good job!

There are a few levels of meaning here--well done!

I'd suggest that a tiny tweaking of the meter might make it flow just a bit more smoothly.

I like that this is both simple and deep.

This a very delightful poem. I enjoyed the tone and flow.
