I try to wrap my head
Around your words.
But they wrap around me
And blind me instead.
I see no truth
I see what you let me see.
I speak no words
Except those you've given me.
I pretend to be strong
I stand resolute, stand tall.
But you can't see the fear,
The insecurities of a fall.
I pretend to rule the world
With a crown on my head
But my eyes are closed.
My mind's dead.
