Collab Poem – A Beautiful Lie

(originally from January 2008)

A Beautiful Lie

I come to you with an open heart
to try to free you from your pain,
but still you cling so beautifully,
holding to your past; your shame.
So beautiful and cold you hide
behind your mask of perfection.
incognito to all who think they know you,
you’re a bundle of lies and deception.
Your scars are too deep to be seen
both the old and the new,
and you throw away the ones who care,
those with eyes that can see through.
So preen before your mirror,
your eyes so fake in happy blue.
Like a puppet for them all, you laugh
while your self decorated hull imprisons you.

Some lines from: sparkles, choporksmom, insatiable jewel
