Elephant in the room

Are we alone?
I’m sensing the presence of a larger force.
While you lie sleeping,
and I lie thinking,
we both lie to ourselves.
There’s an elephant in the room,
trumpeting the message
neither of us wants to hear.
We say nothing,
pretend we know nothing,
in the vain hope that we,
and the elephant,
will forget everything.
