[Poem] Playing Pretense

You lent me your name, 
And I took it, 
Pretending to be someone 
I know not. 

You lent me a peace of mind, 
When oceans were rough, 
It was kind 
Of you, when times were tough. 

You lent me warmth, 
When darkness was cold; 
When the wrath, 
Never seemed to get old. 

Now you take it all away, 
Shifted the earth from beneath me; 
Leaving me no tears to cry, 
As I watch your back fade.
