Love's Looking Glass

It’s hard to hide anymore-
he sees through my game-
forgives the shame-
within-
that I cannot-
loves me for who I am-
not who I pretend to be-
tap dancing on a broken stage
of fake smiles and faded flowers-
the hours- long and steep-
my sleep-
distorted by devil dreams-
I mean well-
don’t mean to keep my dirty little secrets that only I know-
wondering when the fraud of me-
will be exposed-
and when he’ll leave-
disappointment in his eyes-
just like when I was a child-
yet I know that he’s not the one tricked by my game-
the only fool here-
is the girl of shame in the mirror-
for he sees through Love’s Looking Glass-
funny…
he loves the messed up girl residing there-
the golden haired muse of his dreams…
