Poem: Missing the Rhythm

Had to write this for you, 
'Cos it doesn't leave my mind, 
Am glad you're back in poetry, 
Seems your heart is a-skipping, 
Or is that you escaping, 
Well we would never catch the rhythm. 

The merry posts of love, and cheer, 
Peanut butter sandwich being a bliss; 
Vacations taken with camera-ready smiles, 
Giving way to tears behind the scenes 
What are the pretences for? 
You're not a celebrity. 

You threaten of death and depths 
In sleep which you wish not to wake; 
Between your facade and face-saving 
Realities, we cannot extract the trapped, 
Cannot help when we no longer believe, 
Cannot enter when you hide it all.
