I’m not the one 

I’m not who you think I am
I’m not the girl in your lucid dream
Don’t believe the facade, the hologram; that I have this all together
No, I’m broken inside
I’m lost in a maze that keeps changing and I can’t find a way out
I’m swimming in an ocean of questions unanswered, it feels like drowning 
I’m trapped in the system, glitching, trembling from the virus of this life
I don’t trust my feelings, I can’t stand yet another betrayal
I’m not in control; at least on the inside 
I can’t read your mind and so I panic, I ponder on the wild assumptions my mind creates to torment my senses
I’m not sure where this is going and I trip over and over again without a clue
I’m fighting a battle that has no name, me against the world; my own little reality
I need saving too, I need to be free
But this is not what you see
What you see is a pure soul, your light, your moment of peace
You see the perfect rose amidst the thorns
But darling what lies beneath is chaos wrapped in the perfect smile.
