Looking at the reflections of the unseen
my eyes beguile my heart,
hiding beneath layers of unforgiveness
I conceal the nudity of my imperfections.
Carrying their weight I take a step
as gushing pain takes over,
and I allow the hysteria to sink in
everyday a little bit more, I tell myself.
As whispers of the unknown weigh me down
and my ears deafen and wounds bleed,
I keep walking, the oracles of my drenched heart
seeking the epiphanies of the world.
And I give the world, Me
beneath my cloak of invisibility,
Brighter than the star, darker than night
Angel and devil, two conflicting halves of a whole.
I hide beneath these rigid forms,
letting the fragility of my inner self
strengthen its walls around me,
As I hear a voice and feel the warmth
of hope, scribbled on a shard of paper
Mending my hurt and healing my self
setting me free to just be Me
and let me paint my own epiphanies.
