Lately, when she wakes up she begins to dream again,
because he can see that she believes in him,
and that's what's keeping him,
from sleeping in even when everything is seeming dim and all the hate is sinking in…
and all that shame is creeping in.
But she can grin,
because she thinks back to the times when he’d pretend,
and he wasn't as half as happy as she has been.
