You Lying Next to Me

As the sun's rays poked through the shades, an image was reflected off the black screen of a tv.
 
The image consisted of three beings: a proud You lying next to a dishonest Me, as they hopelessly admired a loving We.
 
You and Me always longed to be just like We, but their constant need to act out of pride and dishonesty hindered love's growth significantly.  
 
After much reflection, a now humble You lied next to an honest Me as they transformed into a shamelessly loving We.
